Webinar: Confidentiality and Information Sharing with Families
11 October 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.
This webinar is for…
- Caldicott Guardians
- Information and Medical Records Managers
- Family Liaison / Family Engagement Managers
- Legal Services staff
- Clinical Directors / Managers
Stephen Habgood (Making Families Count), Dorit Braun (Making Families Count), Dr Sarah Constantine (Medical Director Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust), and Dr Zoe Picton Howell (solicitor, medical education tutor Edinburgh University’s medical school, director of the Adam Bojelian Foundation CIC).
