NHS England to give national update for Information Sharing in Mental Health at national conference
In response to the Caldicott Review over a year ago the Government published ‘Information: to share or not to share”. Health and Social Care organisations should now be ensuring the recommendations are working in practice.
This conference provides a practical guide to effective information sharing specifically in a mental health setting in line with the recommendations from the Independent Information Governance Oversight Panel and the new Information Governance Alliance.
NHS England’s Beverley Bryant, Director of Digital Technology, will open the conference with a national update on Information Sharing in Mental Health both within and across the various care organisations involved and also across geographical boundaries. Focus will be placed on integrating care and learning from the new models of care.
The conference will also include an in-depth look at decision making around information sharing, including an update on the legal framework, developing and implementing an effective information sharing protocol for frontline staff, Information Sharing and working in partnership with the police, Information Sharing in complex cases: Learning from multi-agency sharing agreements and the experiences of MARACs, information sharing for mental health crisis, a case study outlining a Caldicott Guardian’s Perspective from a Mental Health Trust and a session focusing on sharing information with carers and relatives.
