Confidentiality: a pocket guide for nursing and health care

Cornock, Marc (2023). Confidentiality: a pocket guide for nursing and health care. pocket guides for nursing and health care. London: Lantern Publishing Ltd.



In some ways confidentiality is a bit of a legal oddity and conundrum in health care. This is because it is something that all health care practitioners are required by their regulatory body to uphold, and there are very good reasons why they should do so, patients expect it to happen, and health care practitioners themselves believe that they have to maintain it; yet there is no absolute obligation on a health are practitioner to keep a patient’s information confidential.

This book is a handy pocket-sized guide to confidentiality that clarifies the obligations that a health care practitioner has to their patient and the patient’s personal information. It places confidentiality in the clinical setting and relates the concepts underlying confidentiality and the principles of confidentiality to your practice.
