Trusted Answers For Doctor-Patient Confidentiality Issues
Outside of narrow circumstances, a patient typically must consent before their medical information can be shared. This is largely due to the highly personal and sensitive nature of medical information. Health care professionals who wrongly disclose a patient’s confidential medical information may be subject to legal action.

Mental health workers, including psychologists and social workers, often find themselves facing challenging questions surrounding what information they can and cannot share.
