Information Sharing

Lack of, or poor information sharing is a key factor repeatedly identified in many serious case reviews carried out following the death of or serious injury to a child.

Fears about sharing information cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children at risk of abuse or neglect. Every practitioner must take responsibility for sharing the information they hold.

Take this course to make sure you know the changes in legislation that allow and support you as a practitioner to share crucial information regarding children’s wellbeing and safety.

We also offer this course in a recorded format.

What will I learn?

  • Why we need to share information.
  • What ‘good’ information sharing looks like.
  • Relevant legislation, including the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989, The Family Violence Act 2018 and The Privacy Act 2020.
  • What the legislation requires us to do when requesting and sharing information.
  • Recent changes to the legislation.
  • How you can apply the above in your practice.

Who is this course for?

  • Anyone working regularly with children and young people or their families.
