summary of legislation/charters relating to confidentiality. You must make reference to the General Data Protection Regulations (2018).

CARE PRINCIPLES

Task 1: Essay

You are required to write a 1500-word essay in which you must evidence the following:

  • A summary of legislation/charters relating to confidentiality. You must make reference to the General Data Protection Regulations (2018). You may include extracts of this within an appendix (2.1).
  • An evaluation of the effectiveness of methods of giving, receiving and storing information (2.2)
  • Using an example, analyse issues relating to confidentiality in the care setting as a Nurse or Midwife, making reference to client choice and the right/need to know (2.3).
  • Again, using an example, explain the personal contribution that you can make as a Nurse or Midwife in promoting anti-discriminatory practice (3.1), summarising your roles and responsibilities as a Nurse or Midwife in terms of accountability for Equality and Diversity in the hospital or community setting, in meeting the equality objectives of the organisation for which you work (3.2)

Firstly – Introduce what is meant by confidently (remember to reference source/s); then explain the importance of being confidential (make use of the GDPR 2018 to support your points, NMC code of conduct or NHS Principles).  (No more than ½ an A4 page).

Secondly – Provide 3 mini examples of different situations where you need to be confidential 1, choice 2. Right + 3. Need to know (2.3). (No more than 4 lines explaining the situation, make it concise). You can choose any situation/incident you want.

1 Choice – Pick a situation where the patient or service user has a choice e.g. a patient chooses not to take their medication or have a hospital delivery. You can use a real workplace situation if you wish but NO Names please. Q. Should they be able to do this? Why? Why not? In line with which legislation or code of conduct? What should you do in your role as a nurse or midwife – i.e. provide factual information…inform them of the benefits or disadvantages of making such a choice.  What would you say or do?

HOWEVER – At what point would you override confidentiality? Why? Or if you did not follow this what would the consequences be?

2 Right - Pick a situation where the patient or service user has the right to withhold personal information e.g. a patient with cancer or HIV chooses not to tell her or his partner that they have this illness. You can use a real workplace situation if you wish but NO Names please. They tell you not to tell the partner. Q. Should you tell the partner? Why not? In line with which legislation or code of conduct? What should you do instead if you are not able to tell the partner?  Your role as a nurse or midwife – i.e. provide factual information…inform them of the benefits of telling their loved one.

HOWEVER – At what point would you override confidentiality? Why? Or if you did not follow this what would the consequences be?

3. Need to know - Pick a situation where the patient’s or service user’s relative wants to know personal information a relative or partner. Q. Should you provide this information? Why not? In line with which legislation or code of conduct? What should you do instead if you are not able to tell the partner?  Your role as a nurse or midwife – i.e. provide factual information…inform them of the benefits of telling their loved one.

HOWEVER – At what point would you override confidentiality? Why? Or if you did not follow this what would the consequences be?

ANY WHERE YOU INCLUDED THE GDPR YOU WILL GET (2.1)

Q. What are the things you need to remember when being confidential when giving, receiving and storing information (2.2).  Mention each word and explain the precautions you need to take i.e. giving information to others such as physiotherapist – only that specific information relating to that particular part of the persons illness needs to be passed on + not any other information.  However, a problem could be everyone knowing about the individual in a multi- disciplinary team because…The good thing about this is that …

Receiving information – don’t talk to colleagues about service users on the bus because…Q. What should you do i.e. check their name is correct by asking them to repeat it. Why? What would be the consequence if you got two peoples name mixed up?

Storing information – Passwords, locked cabinets…why?

All this information can be found online! Make use of the GDPR (2018)

Thirdly – Give one example of when you promoted anti-discriminatory practice (3.1). You need to use a real work example or make it up if you have no work experience of this. Q. What happened? Was if coming from a member of staff or another service user? What did you do to comply with the Equality & Diversity legislation? Roles + Responsibilities (3.2).

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS BE EVALUATIVE (however). Make use of legislation, policies, guidelines or codes of conduct to support your points. Reference your work properly (see Moodle under tutorial).
