Opportunity to join PRSB committee to help provide assurance for digital care record standards.

The PRSB (Professional Records Standards Body) (this link will take you away from our website) is a non-for-profit, UK-wide, community interest company that creates standards for digital health and social care records. The PRSB believe that having the right information in a health record is essential for patient safety.

The PRSB works with health and care professionals, patients, technology experts and carers to agree exactly what information should be included in records. When the information that needs to be shared has been agreed, a template called ‘a standard’ is created so that it can be recorded clearly, with no change or loss of meaning. This means that everyone who views that record sees exactly the same information, and it can be transferred digitally between different systems.

The PRSB is seeking a social care worker to join its Assurance Committee – the committee that provides professional, patient and carer quality assurance for the methods and products for care record standards. The core purpose of this Committee is to ensure proposed work is considered strategically and in the context of the wider system as well as other existing and planned standards. Social care representatives are asked to contribute constructively and effectively, ensuring that the social care professional perspective is reflected in reviews and development of standards.

The time commitment is around 2 days per month plus you can work remotely e.g. dial into meetings. Remuneration is available to cover time / backfill etc. For more information, see the document below.  The closing date for applications has been extended to the 24th of April.
