Description

Nurses face a particular challenge in respecting the confidentiality of patients in a world where information is quickly shared and where information about illness can be sensitive. We have a duty of care towards patients. That duty includes maintaining privacy (protecting them from undue intrusion), and confidentiality (by the discreet management of information about themselves that they share with us). Legislation on confidentiality comes from different sources and should be interpreted in the clinical setting. This learning module summarises the principal requirements set out in the legislation and directs readers to questions and tools designed to help them explore the extent to which patient confidentiality is respected where they work.

Objectives

After completing this module you should be able to:
Distinguish between privacy and confidentiality, and explain how the latter supports the former.
Outline legal requirements associated with confidentiality and informed consent.
Use a series of questions to help you determine whether or not to disclose information.
Identify how changes in health informatics and especially healthcare record systems can increase the risk of breaches in patient confidentiality.
Explore with colleagues the extent to which you are prepared to protect the confidentiality of patients.
