[ As an early years practitioner you have a duty to: keep personal information about children and families private only share information about children and families with those who have a right to
know or when a parent has given permission. Your workplace will have a confidentiality policy that sets out the rules and procedures on sharing confidential information.

4.4 explain how and when to seek advice about confidentiality
Weegy: *A social care worker should get advice about confidentiality when a situation arises and they feel it may need to be broken as keeping such information to yourself causes you concern as it could result in harm to the person you are supporting, [ to someone else or to yourself. To get further information refer to your organisations policy on confidentiality and the disclosure of such information and if in any doubt ask your manager for further assistance. *When they do not understand certain aspects of their State's confidentiality laws. Such laws are important not only for protection of the client but also for the social worker. The general expectation that social workers will keep information confidential does not apply when disclosure is necessary to prevent serious, foreseeable, and imminent harm to a client or other identifiable person. In all instances, social workers should disclose the least amount of confidential information necessary to achieve the desired purpose; only information that is directly relevant to the purpose for which the disclosure is made should be revealed. ] (More)

Weegy: The answer is that in exceptional circumstances you may over-ride your duty of confidentiality to patients/clients if it is in order to protect their best interests or the best interests of the public. [ If you have information that suggests a patient/client is either at risk of harm or is posing a risk of causing harm to someone else, you should report your concerns to your manager and contribute to actions to reduce the risk of harm. ] (More)
