DescriptionThe requirements of an information society present a significant challenge for privacy and confidentiality of personal information. The purpose of this project is to confront and address these tensions with respect to the acquisition and processing of healthcare information. Healthcare professionals require up-to-date guidance on information sharing, which is ethically and legally sound, informs healthcare practice and has practical relevance for their daily work. The aim of the project is to build a knowledge base, a set of standards and guidelines, which will inform professional practice throughout the healthcare sector of the European Community, which harmonises with EU laws and which informs existing policies and guidelines.
