Confidentiality, Domestic Violence Survivors, and Healthcare

Professionals are taught to tell people, “It’s confidential.” But what does that really mean?

*How much do domestic violence survivors understand about who will have access to their healthcare information?
*How much do providers understand?
*Are there ways in which the sharing and accessibility of healthcare records may harm domestic violence survivors or deter them from seeking care?
*How do we balance individual needs to control personal health information with institutional needs to manage and improve the delivery of care?

These are thorny, complicated questions, and they don’t always have a “right” answer. Join us for a nuanced conversation about the intersection of privacy law, healthcare best practices, and domestic violence survivor risk management.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
