Question and answer
Q: Describe the potential tension between maintaining an individual’s confidentiality and disclosing concerns to agreed others
A: Confidentiality should where possible always be observed if your role is a privileged one eg, law, medicine, social services etc. [ However, where there is a duty of care, disclosure should take place specifically in relation to child protection, terrorism and duty of care to protect the individual. The dichotomy or tension is when you through your professional role know something, but it does
not fall into the above category, and must therefore maintain professional confidentiality. ]

User: Explain how and when to seek advice about Confidentiality

Weegy: Those to whom information has been given in confidence, or who have acquired information which they regard as confidential, may not always be sure whether they should disclose this information or not. [ In these circumstances it may be sensible to seek advice from an appropriate person e.g. a college officer or the college doctor, on whether the matter is sufficiently important to breach confidentiality, and, if so, to whom they should report their concerns. This should be done without divulging the name of the student concerned. A concern for confidentiality need not, and should not, prevent communication that is necessary to help students in difficulty. Promises of confidentiality 3.6 It is not always appropriate or sensible to give absolute assurances of confidentiality to those who may wish to talk about personal problems. It may be necessary to say that information may be shared with others who need to know it, if this is in the best interests of the individual and the community, and that this will be carried out with the utmost discretion. Persons with both pastoral and disciplinary responsibilities may need to say in particular that matters of a disciplinary nature may need to be discussed with others. ]
