  1. Embedding information sharing toolkit Part 1: Suggested Activities January 2010

  2. Introduction

  3. Embedding information sharing requires change at all levels of organisation and practice management For example:Strategic information governance frameworks across Children’s Trust partnerships; sponsorship & commitment from senior managers and professional bodies Information sharing strategy; privacy policy; commissioning; language and standards; performance management Information sharing processes for obtaining consent, sharing information securely, recording sharing decisions; supervision; audit Guidance & training for front-line practitioners, managers and their information sharing advisors; case studies Information for children, young people and families There is a need to target all levels and address all of these aspects locally Embedding information sharing toolkit Jan 2010

  4. Purpose, content and use of this toolkit • The purpose of the Embedding information sharing toolkit is to provide senior / project management within Children’s Trust arrangements with a high level view of what is required to embed good practice in information sharing • The toolkit consists of: • lists of activities that are specifically designed to address key barriers and drivers of effective information sharing (this document) • real examples of these activities from local areas (in separate documents) • This toolkit relates to front-line practice in information sharing where case-by-case decisions are required • The toolkit is intended to provide ideas of the sorts of activities that may be required however, as every organisation and area is different, some of these activities may or may not be appropriate for your organisation or area • These activities could be managed as a stand-alone change plan however are probably best implemented as part of wider-reaching change initiatives Embedding information sharing toolkit Jan 2010
