An interactive e-learning resource has been developed by NHS England, Health Education England and e-Learning for Healthcare to support all health and social care staff to effectively apply and follow the Accessible Information Standard.
The first session aims to equip health and care professionals with the knowledge and skills to effectively apply and follow the Accessible Information Standard. In summary, the Standard requires providers of NHS and adult social care to identify, record, flag, share and meet the information and communication support needs of people with a disability or sensory loss.
The second session – Towards Excellence – builds upon the Introduction session and aims to enhance learners’ knowledge, skills and confidence around supporting individuals with information and communication needs and effectively applying the Standard in health and care settings.
