NMC Professional Accountability and Record Keeping

Event Date: 
28 Feb 2019 - 13:30 to 16:00

UNISON Belfast 

Although accountability is often perceived as being something to do with blame it is better defined as being able to account for one’s actions.  However, a practitioner may also be responsible for the actions of another if care was delegated inappropriately. This study day will examine the ways in which health care staff may be asked to justify their decisions.  It will include discussion on maintaining good electronic and hard copy records, understanding Data Protection, Freedom of Information and policy.  The day will also orientate participants to NMC regulation and explain Fitness to Practice proceedings.  It is targeted at nurses and midwives.  It will be delivered by Dr Jane Wright who has a background in Nurse Education and currently advises and represents professionals who come to the attention of their professional regulator


Further sessions of this workshop will be run on
