Get Ahead
in Data Protection

with the Caldicott Guardian Training Course

Are you a Caldicott Guardian? Do you want to improve your knowledge and gain confidence in protecting patient data confidentiality?

If so, then take this half-day course. You’ll learn the knowledge and skills to process patient data in line with the Caldicott Guardian principles, understanding the breadth and impact of data sharing in health and social care. Appropriate information sharing is key in the health and social care sector to protect patients, as it ensures that caregivers of all types have up-to-date and relevant information about the people in their care. 

The course is also interactive, so you will be encouraged to ask questions throughout, and can share your real-world experiences with other attendees, discussing issues and ideas to help them within their role. You’ll also talk through real-life practice scenarios to aid with your learning, giving you a proper hands-on approach.

When you train with DPAS, we offer you more than just the training. We’ll provide you with free policies, templates and tools – after the course has concluded. We also provide you with the relevant resources to help you throughout.
