This National Conference focuses on Information Governance in Health and Social Care, ensuring demonstrable compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and moving beyond baseline compliance to delivering accountability with a real evidenced understanding of the risks to individuals in the way data is processed and how those risks should be mitigated. This will begin with an opening address focusing on Information Sharing, GDPR and COVID-19, the current situation and also moving forward beyond the pandemic. Through national updates, expert led extended interactive sessions and practical case studies the conference will support you to improve practice your service. The conference will also look at secondary use of data, ensuring frontline staff understand GPDR Principles, multi agency information sharing, and compliance monitoring.

“Information sharing must be done differently to support the fight against COVID-19 and to protect citizens compared to ordinary times. Information may need to be shared more quickly and widely across organisations than normal, or different types of information may need to be collected and used… The COVID-19 response has proven just how effective our confidentiality safeguards are, and how quickly laws and clauses supporting the sharing of confidential patient data in a time of crisis can be activated.”

Dame Fiona Caldicott, National Data Guardian 2020

The Conference will also update delegates on Caldicott Guardian developments and the proposed new Caldicott Principle which is currently in consultation:

“Principle 8: Inform patients and service users about how their confidential information is used A range of steps should be taken to ensure no surprises for patients and service users, so they can have clear expectations about how and why their confidential information is used, and what choices they have about this. These steps will vary depending on the use: as a minimum, this should include providing accessible, relevant and appropriate information - in some cases, greater engagement will be required.”
