There is still a lot of uncertainty linked to IG Training nationally and when the new national e-learning modules will be launched – those in the know are not saying.
Hopefully there will be a more rationale approach this time around but that could mean that non NHS organisations working with the NHS find themselves at a disadvantage and are not allowed access to the online training due to “resource issues”.
That may not be a disadvantage though because the effectiveness of any online training will be based on how often they keep it up to date and NHSD do not have a good track history with that.
Organisations should always be balancing what they get “for free” against what they may have to pay for and work out what gives them the most assurance.
This principle is something that you need to bear in mind over the coming months.
