Information Sharing Matters
Information Sharing Matters is a free education programme designed for the early years workforce and healthcare professionals about information sharing in early years.
To care appropriately, you must share appropriately.
Dr Max Davie, Community Paediatrician
Information Sharing Matters was developed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and 4Children. It has funded by the Department of Health and endorsed by the Department for Education and the Community Practitioners and Health Visitor Association (CPHVA).
Information Sharing Matters is designed to improve your knowledge, skills and understanding of the benefits of effectively sharing information in a professional context. It is made up of online and face-to-face resources supporting the training of individuals and multidisciplinary teams.
On completion of this programme you will be able to:
- explain what information can and cannot be shared in a context of integrated working
- describe the range of benefits to children and families related to information sharing, with a focus on improving outcomes
- use and share good practice with your colleagues and between individuals and organisations
- support improved information sharing, helping to build trust between professionals and improving outcomes for young children and their families
