Webinar: Confidentiality and Information Sharing with Families
3 May 2023
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Families frequently report that the issue of confidentiality is a recurring theme in their experience of losing a family member to suicide. This webinar recognises the difficulties for healthcare staff in balancing the rights of an individual to confidentiality and the importance of working closely with families – listening to their concerns and the information they are able to provide, as key factors in determining risk and planning effective interventions for service users. This webinar will help you work through how legitimate concerns about confidentiality are compatible with information sharing and will give practical ideas about how you could do this.
- Presenters: Stephen Habgood (Making Families Count), Julie Kerry(Chief Nurse, Director of Quality HC-One), Dr Sarah Constantine (Medical Director Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust) and Zoe Picton Howell (solicitor, medical education tutor Edinburgh University’s medical school, director of the Adam Bojelian Foundation CIC)
- All participants will receive the programme in advance and information about Making Families Count. Everyone who attends the webinar will receive a resources pack. Making Families Count webinars are in the process of becoming CPD accredited.
