Moreover, this relationship develops professionally when patient 's private data is not shared among individuals or other paramedical staff. Gradinger, et al (2015) portrays patient 's desires as far as confidentiality concerned; • Information not to be talked about or given to someone else unless it is imperative • Health care providers must take patients consent before giving their information to someone else • Their matters not to be discussed
(2010) assert that seeking and disclosing information must be based on the need to know, which means the nurse must only take and record the information that is important in delivering the best nursing care. Also, not disclosing information to others such as colleagues unless it is safer and required for the patient 's wellbeing or as patient 's request for example communicating patient 's confidential information to the family members as patient 's wishes (Fry et al. 2010). In addition, Waller (2014) states that the nurse can disclose patients confidential information at times when it is necessary to
Any breach in confidentiality will diminish physician-patient relationship. Patient will less likely share sensitive information and this could impaired the care. But respect for this encourages the patient to seek care and be honest as much as possible during the course of care. Privacy and confidentiality: are basic rights in our society. Privacy and confidentiality are used to safeguard those right and respect individual personal health information by health care providers which is the ethical and legal obligation.
Autonomy is the right of competent adults to make informed decisions about their own medical care. The principle requires informed agreement of the patient before any investigation or treatment takes place (ANA). Children should still be informed, and we should get verbal consent for assessment, but a legal guardian must also give consent. Ethical issues often arise when caring for children with psychiatric disorders because they are a vulnerable population. The UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities set out rights to be respected in child and adolescent psychiatric assessment and treatment.
Interpreters should take into consideration the meaning of nonverbal aspects of communication such as posture, eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, nodding, physical closeness, physical contact; loudness, pitch, speed, flow, the intonation of their voice, sentence stress etc. Even in medical discourse cultural background and beliefs should be taken into account during interpreting so as not to limit the process to verbatim rendering, which can lead to misunderstandings due to culturally rooted beliefs or superstitions dealing with health and healthcare. The job of an interpreter as a culture broker is to make sure the patients understand the doctor’s instructions and will follow them in future even if they go against their cultural beliefs, and the healthcare providers get the full and accurate picture of the patient’s symptoms, and there are no cross-cultural misunderstanding between the two
One of the main challenges is how to keep patient’s medical data away from unauthorized disclosure. The usage of medical data can be of interest for a large variety of healthcare stakeholders. For example, an online direct-to-consumer service provider offers individual risk prediction for patient’s disease. Without good protection of patient’s medical data, patient may feel afraid that his medical data will be leaked and abused, and refuse to provide his medical data to CDSS for diagnosis. Therefore, it is crucial to protect patient’s medical data.

Benificence is a principle that states that the welfare of a patient should be the goal of a researcher, doctor, teacher, or in this case hypnotherapist. That a patient's well-being is the fundamental and central aim of treatment should be clearly expressed to patients
This essay will discuss the concept of resilience, it will also discuss the topics of the risk and protective factors that contribute to resilience, what makes us resilient and what are the factors of resilience that affect the healthcare consumer and professional. Resilience is the ability to ‘bounce back’ in difficult situations or adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress, such as family and relationship problems, serious health and wellbeing problems or workplace and financial stressors (American Psychological Association, 2016). Resilience is not something people have or don’t have, it’s to do with behaviours, thoughts and actions that are taken during a difficult time. People are
Physicians are to respect the patient’s desires and respect their decisions (MissingLink, n.d.). Beneficence is action to benefit others. Meaning, physicians must act in the best interest of their patients and put the patient’s needs above their own. If patients lack the ability to make informed decisions, the physician must act to keep patients from making decisions that are not in their best interests (MissingLink,
Lippi et al. stated that in any misleadingly assumed cases not promptly identified can produce serious harm to patients. In addition to SNB code of ethics, value statement 5, ensure that the safety of their patients is not put at risk by the commission or omission of any nursing care activity.
