Ethical issues among Finnish occupational physicians and nurses. (1/1270)

A postal survey was conducted among 200 Finnish occupational physicians and nurses on their ethical values and problems. Both groups considered 'expertise' and 'confidentiality' as the most important core values of occupational health services (OHS) corresponding with newly published national ethical guidelines for occupational physicians and nurses in Finland. Nearly all respondents had encountered ethically problematic situations in their work, but ethical problems with gene testing in the near future were not considered likely to occur. Only 41% of the nurses and 36% of the physicians had received some training in the ethics of OHS, and 76% of all respondents never used available ethical guidelines. According to the results, even if ethics play a vital role in OHS, the ability to critically evaluate one's own performance seems quite limited. This creates a need for further training and more practicable national guidelines.  (+info)

Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service. (2/1270)

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

Driving toward guiding principles: a goal for privacy, confidentiality, and security of health information. (3/1270)

As health care moves from paper to electronic data collection, providing easier access and dissemination of health information, the development of guiding privacy, confidentiality, and security principles is necessary to help balance the protection of patients' privacy interests against appropriate information access. A comparative review and analysis was done, based on a compilation of privacy, confidentiality, and security principles from many sources. Principles derived from ten identified sources were compared with each of the compiled principles to assess support level, uniformity, and inconsistencies. Of 28 compiled principles, 23 were supported by at least 50 percent of the sources. Technology could address at least 12 of the principles. Notable consistencies among the principles could provide a basis for consensus for further legislative and organizational work. It is imperative that all participants in our health care system work actively toward a viable resolution of this information privacy debate.  (+info)

Audit in the therapy professions: some constraints on progress. (4/1270)

AIMS: To ascertain views about constraints on the progress of audit experienced by members of four of the therapy professions: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and clinical psychology. METHODS: Interviews in six health service sites with a history of audit in these professions. 62 interviews were held with members of the four professions and 60 with other personnel with relevant involvement. Five main themes emerged as the constraints on progress: resources; expertise; relations between groups; organisational structures; and overall planning of audit activities. RESULTS: Concerns about resources focused on lack of time, insufficient finance, and lack of access to appropriate systems of information technology. Insufficient expertise was identified as a major constraint on progress. Guidance on designing instruments for collection of data was the main concern, but help with writing proposals, specifying and keeping to objectives, analysing data, and writing reports was also required. Although sources of guidance were sometimes available, more commonly this was not the case. Several aspects of relations between groups were reported as constraining the progress of audit. These included support and commitment, choice of audit topics, conflicts between staff, willingness to participate and change practice, and concerns about confidentiality. Organisational structures which constrained audit included weak links between heads of professional services and managers of provider units, the inhibiting effect of change, the weakening of professional coherence when therapists were split across directorates, and the ethos of regarding audit findings as business secrets. Lack of an overall plan for audit meant that while some resources were available, others equally necessary for successful completion of projects were not. CONCLUSION: Members of four of the therapy professions identified a wide range of constraints on the progress of audit. If their commitment to audit is to be maintained these constraints require resolution. It is suggested that such expert advice, but also that these are directed towards the particular needs of the four professions. Moreover, a forum is required within which all those with a stake in therapy audit can acknowledge and resolve the different agendas which they may have in the enterprise.  (+info)

Confidentiality and HIV status in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa: implications, resistances and challenges. (5/1270)

This article provides a contextualized comparison and analysis of the former Kwazulu and the new Kwazulu-Natal policy documents on HIV confidentiality, the differing practices within the region, and their implications for support and gender. It is based on interviews with key players in the regional NACOSA (National AIDS Convention of South Africa), and participation in meetings between August and November 1995. The main division is between those influenced by other rural African models, especially the Zambian concept of "shared confidentiality' as a way of ensuring support, and who have gone on to develop more community-based practices to destigmatize the disease, in contrast with the stronger emphasis in the new document on individual rights, assuming a more urban constituency, and where "shared confidentiality' is much more circumscribed. One of the difficulties of the new policy in which "confidentiality' is interpreted as "secrecy', is that it would seem to foreclose and neutralize lay and community support, as distinct from the earlier and unacknowledged policy of former Kwazulu. It also seeks to provide an enhanced role for professional counsellors. This psychologizing of the infection and the distancing from "community', and from women's groups, is surprising in a country in whose townships "community' remains a powerful motivating symbol, and where NGOs and peer groups have been identified everywhere as central to effective HIV/AIDS related prevention, care and support for behavior change.  (+info)

Medical records and privacy: empirical effects of legislation. (6/1270)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of state legislation requiring patient informed consent prior to medical record abstraction by external researchers for a specific study. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Informed consent responses obtained from November 1997 through April 1998 from members of a Minnesota-based IPA model health plan. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive case study of consent to gain access to medical records for a pharmaco-epidemiologic study of seizures associated with use of a pain medication that was conducted as part of the FDA's post-marketing safety surveillance program to evaluate adverse events associated with approved drugs. DATA COLLECTION: The informed consent process approved by an institutional review board consisted of three phases: (1) a letter from the health plan's medical director requesting participation, (2) a second mailing to nonrespondents, and (3) a follow-up telephone call to nonrespondents. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Of 140 Minnesota health plan members asked to participate in the medical records study, 52 percent (73) responded and 19 percent (26) returned a signed consent form authorizing access to their records for the study. For 132 study subjects enrolled in five other health plans in states where study-specific consent was not required, health care providers granted access to patient medical records for 93 percent (123) of the members. CONCLUSION: Legislation requiring patient informed consent to gain access to medical records for a specific research study was associated with low participation and increased time to complete that observational study. Efforts to protect patient privacy may come into conflict with the ability to produce timely and valid research to safeguard and improve public health.  (+info)

Genetic privacy: orthodoxy or oxymoron? (7/1270)

In this paper we question whether the concept of "genetic privacy" is a contradiction in terms. And, if so, whether the implications of such a conclusion, inevitably impact on how society comes to perceive privacy and responsibility generally. Current law and ethical discourse place a high value on self-determination and the rights of individuals. In the medical sphere, the recognition of patient "rights" has resulted in health professionals being given clear duties of candour and frankness. Dilemmas arise, however, when patients decline to know relevant information or, knowing it, refuse to share it with others who may also need to know. This paper considers the notions of interconnectedness and responsibility to others which are brought to the fore in the genetic sphere and which challenge the primacy afforded to personal autonomy. It also explores the extent to which an individual's perceived moral obligations can or should be enforced.  (+info)

Genetic testing: a conceptual exploration. (8/1270)

This paper attempts to explore a number of conceptual issues surrounding genetic testing. It looks at the meaning of the terms, genetic information and genetic testing in relation to the definition set out by the Advisory Committee on Genetic Testing in the UK, and by the Task Force on Genetic Testing in the USA. It argues that the special arrangements that may be required for the regulation of genetic tests should not be determined by reference to the nature or technology of the test, but by considering those morally relevant features that justify regulation. Failure to do so will lead to the regulation of genetic tests that need not be regulated, and would fail to cover other tests which should be regulated. The paper also argues that there is little in the nature of the properties of gene tests, using DNA or chromosomes, that in itself justifies a special approach.  (+info)

Medical personnel sometimes face a seeming conflict between a duty to respect patient confidentiality and a duty to warn or protect endangered third parties. The conventional answer to dilemmas of this sort is that, in certain circumstances, medical professionals have an obligation to breach confidentiality. Kenneth Kipnis has argued, however, that the conventional wisdom on the nature of medical confidentiality is mistaken. Kipnis argues that the obligation to respect patient confidentiality is unqualified or absolute, since unqualified policies can save more lives in the long run. In this paper, I identify the form of Kipniss argument and present a challenge to it. I conclude that, as matters stand now, a qualified confidentiality policy is the more rational choice. ...
Research conducted in several countries, including England, Australia, Canada, and the USA demonstrates the importance of medical confidentiality to patients. Findings suggest, for example, that patients who believe that their privacy will be respected are more likely to seek treatment, discuss problems openly, and return for follow up care.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 In recognition of the importance of medical confidentiality to successful health outcomes, the US federal government recently adopted rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to include the first comprehensive protection for the privacy of health information in the USA.14. The primary purpose of the HIPAA privacy rule has been to direct the creation of a system of rules, practices, and oversight to protect medical information. Patient understanding of confidentiality is addressed in the rules requirement that healthcare providers explain to patients the conditions under which their information ...

Attorney at Law On Feb. 27, 2006, The Green Sheet published an article I wrote about confidentiality provisions in ISO and agent agreements titled "Confidentiality clauses in ISO agreements." In this updated article, I revisit this important topic.. Many ISOs and merchant level salespeople (MLSs) gloss over confidentiality provisions in ISO or agent agreements, partly because they are dry reading and partly because they all seem to be alike. But dry as they are, confidentiality provisions can have important implications for your processor relationships. Keep the following in mind when reading confidentiality clauses in your agreements:. Information covered. Most confidentiality clauses define "confidential information" through a long list of specific inclusions and exclusions. Of these, pricing and merchant information are the most sensitive to the processor. Read the confidentiality clause in your ISO agreement to determine whether these two categories are included.

Confidential information or trade secrets refers simply to information that has value to a designer or manufacturer because competitors dont have access to the information. As long as the information is kept secret, and is only disclosed to others in confidence, then the secrets may remain protected as trade secrets for many years.

MEDICINE AND THE LAW Termination of pregnancy and children: consent and confidentiality issues David McQuoid-Mason While the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act1 (Choice Act) allows a female of any age to consent to a termination of pregnancy,2 there are other statutes, such as the Child Care Act3 and the Childrens Act,4 that provide for different ages of consent for medical and surgical procedures. Doctors are not always certain whether young girls are legally capable of giving proper informed consent for certain associated procedures when undergoing a termination of pregnancy. Furthermore, the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act5 (the Sexual Offences Act), which imposes a duty to report sexual offences against children, seems to undermine the girl-child patients right to confidentiality.

Personal Information Spaces (PIS) help in structuring, storing, and retrieving personal information. Still, it is the users duty to sequence the basic steps in different online procedures, and to fill out the corresponding forms with personal information, in order to fulfill some objectives. We propose an extension for PIS that assists users in achieving this duty. We perform a composition of form-based services in order to reach objectives expressed as workflow of capabilities. Further, we take into account that user personal information can be contextual and that the user may have personal information privacy policies. Our solution is based on graph planning and is fully tool-supported.

Confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements are used to impose confidentiality obligations on parties receiving information on materials from disclosing parties which consider such information or material to be confidential. The courts will only protect confidential information or trade secrets. An employee is free to use the skill and knowledge which he acquired in the course of his employment. Drafting the appropriate contract requires consideration of some key issues. The first challenge is to identify, with particularity, the information which is confidential. There may be limitations on what information is deemed confidential, such as information already known to the signing party, or information made public, through government agency order, etc. The second question focuses on whether you are the party receiving or disclosing such information. The third issue concerns the duration for keeping the information confidential. Finally, consider whether the confidential information also ...

We face admittedly challenging ethical questions and calculus regarding not only potentially causing harms to persons re-identified through conduct of re-identification research, but also possibly reducing important societal benefits if we do not accurately estimate and represent the true risks. Clearly, there is an important motivation for mitigating possible privacy risks and harms by researching and exposing re-identification vulnerabilities. However, we must also struggle with even broader longer-range questions as to how we can best balance re-identification risks with the considerable benefits that come from research analyses conducted with de-identified data.. Ive argued elsewhere that we must achieve an ethical equipoise between potential privacy harms and the very real benefits that result from the advancement of science and healthcare improvements which are accomplished with de-identified data. For those who are seeking a yet undiscovered cure for a disease that afflicts them, our ...
In July, clinical commissioners wrote to NHS England stating that they cannot carry out their statutory duties because of issues around processing patient confidential data. According to the E Health Insider article, primary care trusts had exemption to process patient confidential data (PCD) but this was not transferred to CCGs. Guidance issued from NHS England states that PCD can only be used for direct patient care, which does not include many other functions of commissioners.. In the letter to NHS England, NHS Clinical Commissioners state that there is a "very real concern amongst CCGs that the impact of this will be to stop them fulfilling their statutory functions" and that "CCGs have a fundamental need to access and process PCD, without which CCGs will be unable to carry out their commissioning responsibilities and support their member practices". Three significant issues impacting on CCGs are outlined in the letter. It says that risk stratification tools which rely on PCD are central to ...

Research indicates that overbreathing may contribute to 40 per cent of symptoms presenting to GPs - Anne Pitman advises on diagnosis and management. Almost every GP in the country has several patients who regularly attend with a list of symptoms that trouble them deeply but for which endless investigations fail to find a cause. Many such cases result from disturbed breathing.. Duncan stated in 1987 that chronic hyperventilation contributed to 40 per cent of symptoms in general practice1.. The box on the right details common symptoms of chronic hyperventilation. With such a long diverse list of symptoms it is easy to understand how this condition can also be called fat folder syndrome as patients visit one specialist after another, failing to find a diagnosis and accruing larger and larger sets of notes. Eventually such patients are labelled neurotic and hypochondriacal.. A lot of time and resources are being used up by investigations, so how can the GP recognise these patients and help ...

An anonymous study is one in which nobody (not even the researcher) can identify who provided data. It is difficult to conduct an anonymous questionnaire through the mail because of the need to follow-up on nonresponders. The only way to do a follow-up is to mail another survey or reminder postcard to the entire sample. However, it is possible to guarantee confidentiality, where those conducting the study promise not to reveal the information to anyone. For the purpose of follow-up, identifying numbers on questionnaires are generally preferred to using respondents names. It is important, however, to explain why the number is there and what it will be used for.. Some studies have shown that response rate is affected by the anonymity/confidentiality policy of a study. Others have reported that responses became more distorted when subjects felt threatened that their identities would become known. Others have found that anonymity and confidentiality issues do not affect response rates or ...

I talked with a group of teachers about two tough confidentiality issues this week. One involved a teacher who shared a story with her neighbor about a rough student. She included names and identifying details. The neighbor then shared the story on Facebook. It quickly turned into quite a disaster. The other issue involved an assistant principal who requested that a counselor provide him with confidential information regarding students who were pregnant.. As I talked through these issues with my colleagues, we agreed that some of the typical relationship principles applied. As an administrator in each of these cases, it would be important to have good relationships with the parties involved, to communicate clearly, and to be willing to ask for help when needed. In addition to these, two other common threads show up in these issues:. ...
As more diagnostic, screening, and monitoring tests based on genetic data become available, privacy issues are becoming increasingly important. There are concerns that the results of genetic tests showing a person to be pre-disposed to a particular disease will fall into the hands of commercial medical suppliers or financial, legal, insurance, or government agencies, all of which control important products or services.. The confidentiality of medical information is of paramount importance to most consumers and patients. However, maintaining confidentiality is Important personal information, such as a persons DNA, can be gleaned from blood samples.

Personal information management (PIM) is the activities people perform in order to acquire, organize, maintain, retrieve and use personal information items such as documents (paper-based and digital), web pages and email messages for everyday use to complete tasks (work-related or not) and fulfill a persons various roles (as parent, employee, friend, member of community, etc.). More simply, PIM is the art of getting things done in our lives through information. Practically, PIM is concerned with how people organize and maintain personal information collections, and methods that can help people in doing so. People may manage information in a variety of settings, for a variety of reasons, and with a variety of types of information. For example, an office worker might manage physical documents in a filing cabinet by placing them in folders organized alphabetically by project name, or might manage digital documents in folders in a hierarchical file system. A parent might collect and organize ...

Confidentiality basically means a very high level of privacy. CAPS is one of the few offices at the university that are a confidential resource. Your privacy and our records are protected by state and federal laws, as well as our providers licensing rules and professional ethics, all of which hold very strict standards on maintaining confidentiality.. Our records are separate from other university records, and if you are over the age of 18, your contact with our office is not disclosed to anyone without your written permission except in specific situations dictated by law. The most common is when there is an urgent need to help connect you emergency care providers (like a hospital). This usually happens when there is a very serious likelihood of you committing suicide, and we see this as an important step in saving your life. There are other rare instances that are detailed in our confidentiality form that you will read before your first visit. Your counselor can also answer any questions you ...

Another idea that you may not be familiar with is confidentiality. If your research project is funded by private industry, your institution and your advisor may have signed some sort of written, legally binding agreement called a confidentiality agreement that may limit or prohibit some or any oral and/or written communication with others outside the financial/research relationship concerning the project. These agreements also often limit presentation and/or publication of project findings to those outside of the confidentiality agreement. Thus, you may not be able to present your findings at professional conferences or publish your findings in the peer-reviewed literature. Consequently, it is important to inquire about any restrictive requirements that could affect your project and/or your ability to discuss your work at the beginning of your research project.. ...

TYLER, Texas - U.S. Attorney John M. Bales announced today that a former employee of an East Texas hospital has pleaded guilty to criminal HIPAA charges in the Eastern District of Texas. Joshua Hippler, 30, formerly of Longview, Texas, was indicted on March 26, 2014, on charges of Wrongful Disclosure of Individually Identifiable Health Information. Hippler pleaded guilty on August 28, 2014 during a hearing before United States Magistrate Judge John D. Love. The indictment alleged that from December 1, 2012, through January 14, 2013, Hippler, who was then an employee of a covered entity under HIPAA, obtained protected health information with the intent to use the information for personal gain.. Hippler faces up to ten years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not been set. The investigation leading to the charges was conducted by agents from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Until recently, philosophers took little interest in medical practice or physicians codes of ethics. Since the 1960s, however, they have joined physicians, theologians, and lawyers in founding journals, research centers, hospital and medical school committees, departments, programs, and special degrees in medical ethics, primarily in North America but increasingly world-wide. This exponential growth invites differentiation of medical ethics (primarily, physician-centered) and health care ethics (including nurses and other healthcare providers), clinical ethics (focused on hospital case decisions with the aid of diverse committees and consultants), and bioethics (including general issues of reproduction, fair distribution of organs and other scarce life-saving resources, and protection of the biosphere). Principal topics in medical ethics include: physicians paternalistic deceptions and violations of patient confidentiality; the rights of patients or their surrogates to refuse life-sustaining ...

Details of Googles DeepMind data-sharing agreement with the UK NHS revealed that the AI system would have access to millions of patient records.

This brings back memories! I was the newsletter editor for the chapter of DOC at the Medical College of Georgia in the 1980s. We had a speakers bureau that would send medical students out to various schools in the area to talk about AIDS and safe sex, nutrition, and of course smoking. We also sponsored our own local Emphysema Slims Tennis tournament each year. We were perhaps best known for one of our faculty advisors, Dr. Paul Fischer, a family physician. He gained some notoriety in 1991 when he published a study in JAMA showing that Joe Camel was more recognizable to young children than disney characters. RJ Reynolds responded by suing to get the names of participants in the study in violation of patient confidentiality. The story can be found here, among other places. Unfortunately their tactics were successful in forcing Dr. Fischer out of academic medicine and into private practice ...

David V. Radack Confidentiality agreements, sometimes called secrecy or nondisclosure agreements, are contracts entered into by two or more parties in which some or all of the parties agree that certain types of information that pass from one party to the other or that are created by one of the parties will remain confidential. Such agreements are often used when a company or individual has a secret process or a new product that it wants another company to evaluate as a precursor to a comprehensive licensing agreement. Or, perhaps one party wants to evaluate anothers existing commercial product for a new and different application.. Confidentiality agreements perform several functions. First and most obviously, they protect sensitive technical or commercial information from disclosure to others. One or more participants in the agreement may promise to not disclose technical information received from the other party. If the information is revealed to another individual or company, the injured ...

As a general rule, the more specific the information is identified, the more likely courts in California are likely to uphold the term. Every business has information which, if it fell into the hands of a competitor, would be damaging. For that reason, companies should identify in their confidentiality agreements the information which they seek to protect. We recommend specific terms like "compilations showing customer identities," "pricing and cost information, including the cost of goods sold and margins," "budgeting and sales forecasts," "information regarding prototypes, including failure rates," "schematics and CAD files," and "the findings of our research and development." Again, when your company updates its confidentiality agreement and intellectual property assignment terms, it should also tune up the scope of protected confidential information.. 3.
