Course title: GDPR in Practice

Course description: This interactive half-day workshop is aimed primarily at administration and reception staff working in both medical and dental environments.

The main focus however will be on how these overarching principles translate on a practical level to the day-to-day workings in a busy medical or dental practice, and how data protection must become embedded in the normal activities of all organisations, particularly in the areas of data security and confidentiality breaches. It is open to both MDDUS members and non-members.

Course title: Confidentiality in Practice

Course description: This interactive full day course is aimed primarily at medical and practice admin and reception teams, and will focus on key areas of maintaining patient confidentiality in a busy practice setting. The introduction of GDPR has heightened awareness and responsibilities for all data controllers and processors, and in most situations there is a direct impact on the professional and ethical duty to protect patient confidentiality. The workshop will focus on key areas such as: common law principles, disclosures that are in public interest, dealing with requests for personal information from bodies such as the police, schools, government bodies and health and social care services, and also approaches by the families of deceased patients. The workshop will also consider practical solutions to preventing confidentiality breaches within the work environment itself. It is open to both MDDUS member and non-member practices.
