  • What steps are required to attain a positive outcome.

09 Confidentiality

When caring for someone with a condition or illness, confidentiality can be a barrier that can impact upon the quality of care the individual receives.
In this podcast we discuss :

  • Healthcare professional-patient confidentiality.
  • Sharing information with 3rd parties (e.g. local authorities who can provide support) with consent
  • Getting help from local authorities, local self-help groups etc
  • Asking for what you need and writing a formal letter
