what privacy laws allow when discussing drug therapy
There's confusion about what privacy laws allow when discussing drug therapy...among health care providers, family, caregivers, etc.
Some providers are TOO cautious...sacrificing patient care for patient confidentiality. For example, some have gone so far as refusing to discuss an Rx over the phone.
The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) governs the collection, use, and disclosure of health information.
