*  A challenge to unqualified medical confidentiality | Journal of Medical Ethics
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 Kipnis's argument and present a challenge to it. I conclude that, as matters stand now, a qualified confidentiality policy is the more rational choice. ...
*  Termination of pregnancy and children: consent and confidentiality issues
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 Children's 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 patient's right to confidentiality. Consent to termination of pregnancy by minors There is a need to clarify the position concerning ...

*  Automatic Composition of Form-Based Services in a Context-Aware Personal Information Space
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.

*  Ethical Concerns, Conduct and Public Policy for Re-Identification and De-identification Practice: Part 3 (Re-Identification...
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.. I've 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 ...
*  NHS for sale :: Patient Confidentiality
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 ...
*  Are our fears over patient confidentiality justified? | Feature | Pulse Today
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 ...

*  Anonymity and Confidentiality in Surveys
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 ...
