Confidentiality is the protection of personal information. Confidentiality means keeping a client’s information between you and the client, and not telling others including co-workers, friends, family, etc.
Examples of maintaining confidentiality include:
- individual files are locked and secured
- support workers do not tell other people what is in a client’s file unless they have permission from the client
- information about clients is not told to people who do not need to know
- clients’ medical details are not discussed without their consent
- adult clients have the right to keep any information about themselves confidential, which includes that information being kept from family and friends
The types of information that is considered confidential can include:
- name, date of birth, age, sex and address
- current contact details
- bank details
- medical history or records
- personal care issues
- service records and file progress notes
- individual personal plans
- assessments or reports
- incoming or outgoing personal correspondence
Other information relating to ethic or racial origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, health or sexual lifestyle should also be considered confidential. There is, however, no such thing as absolute confidentiality in the service industry. Workers are required to keep notes on all interactions with clients and often to keep statistics about who is seen and what issues are addressed. As a worker, there will be times when you could be faced with some personal difficulties regarding confidentiality. You need to give your client an assurance that what is said will be in confidence (that it will stay secret between you and the client) because, unless you are able to do that, the client is unlikely to be open with you. However, you also need to be aware of the limits to the confidentiality that you are offering. There are several instances where total confidentiality is either impossible, undesirable or illegal. These include: cases where the law requires disclosure of information which will be
Confidentiality also extends to things like:
- names and addresses of clients
- phone numbers and addresses of staff and volunteers
- details of funding agreements
- information about strategic planning
Importance of confidentiality
One of the most important elements of confidentiality is that it helps to build and develop trust. It potentially allows for the free flow of information between the client and worker and acknowledges that a client’s personal life belong to them. One of the major purposes for obtaining a client’s consent before speaking to a third party is to protect the confidentiality and privacy of the client. Informed consent (obtaining personal information with the formal permission of the client or a person who has the legal authority to provide permission on behalf of the client) is considered essential in maintaining the privacy of the client. It is important to keep your clients’ business as just that – their business. You should only discuss matters relating to your clients business with co-workers, and then only what needs to be discussed. Discussions should take place in the workplace and not be audible to other members of staff or the general public. You should never discuss clients business with family or friends. Respect for client confidentiality and staff personal information should be a high priority for all community services to comply with legislation that governs disclosure of information. In this regard all organisations need to have policies and procedures that provide guidelines for workers. Appropriate worker behaviour can also be incorporated in a code of conduct. To ensure confidentiality, workers should only access confidential information for work that is covered by their job description and the policies and procedures of the organisation. They should only disclose information to other parties where a client (or co-worker in relation to their personal information) has consented to the release of the information or where disclosure is required or mandated by legislation due to indications of risk of harm. Further workers need to ensure that any information that is collected is securely stored and disposed of.
