@otnotes So last time we chatted re: using blogs as CPD. that led to discussion of 2 pronged privacy concerns in blogs: 4 clients and 4 self #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:06:42 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #OTalk I really enjoyed reading your reflections in your blog post the last discussion we had in this subject @gilliancrossley (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:07:40 +0100)
@Lisa_D_OT Hi all, will drop in to tonights chat but got lots of uni work to do 😦 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:07:47 +0100)
@everydaytherapy @gilliancrossley hey #OTalk iPhone being commandeered for power ranger shopping by boychild; I’ll be back soon I hope! Poorer, but back !(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:08:48 +0100)
@merrolee #OTalk finally made one. Hi all(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:09:09 +0100)
@Helen_otuk So who blogs about clients? or case studies etc?
#otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:09:13 +0100)
@gilliancrossley Whose story is it to tell?Is making details anonymous enough if a client/colleague can recognise themselves? #otalk (notes from event)(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:09:28 +0100)
@Th00ha @otnotes I missed that, but I was thinking where you live can hv impact on privacy etc. Eg, small community. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:09:45 +0100)
@gilliancrossley What should be kept private and what is OK for public blogging? #otalk (notes from event)(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:09:49 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @fullyOccupied @merrolee Good evening / morning… hi all. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:10:26 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @everydaytherapy ha ha! see you when your power ranger supply has been replenished : ) #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:10:48 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied #otalk glad you like it! last talk really got me thinking!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:11:22 +0100)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley I also found the question of “whose story is it” to be interesting. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:11:47 +0100)
@Helen_otuk ok where should we start? Who’s story is it could be a good place? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:12:35 +0100)
@otnotes So is it ever OK to use a realistic case study on your blog? If NOT, what changes need to be made for IRL discussions in classes? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:13:20 +0100)
@nursefriendly RT @BAOTCOT : Now! #OTuesday RT @OTalk_Occhat : Tonight – Privacy/Confidentiality and Blogging/CPD. http://t.co/w93gX4Fx #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:13:36 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @otnotes #otalk I’ve been thinking about that a lot! wondering if its from our perspective is that ok?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:14:09 +0100)
@fullyOccupied @gilliancrossley #OTalk was really impressive that u spent more time thinking &described the issues well 🙂 has it had any lasting thoughts?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:14:30 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Have people discussed this with individuals before blogging? Shared the story? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:14:42 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied #otalk yes! I have been considering all these things in more than just blogging! when giving examples case studies etc..(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:15:41 +0100)
@Helen_otuk RT @fullyOccupied : @gilliancrossley #OTalk was really impressive that u spent more time thinking &described the issues well 🙂 has it had any lasting thoughts?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:15:51 +0100)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley I think that in healthcare, cases are essential to education. But you should still maintain essential privacy #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:16:20 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley @otnotes the clients’ story written from your perspective? I don’t think we can separate the 2 in this case. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:16:44 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #otalk just thinking blogs, or other times we use a persons experience – for learning, sharing, publicity materials, interviews, job apps??(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:16:56 +0100)
@Th00ha @Helen_otuk like getting consent to tell their story? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:17:38 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @fullyOccupied Do we need to have a different approach in different circumstances? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:17:58 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied #otalk I wrote a blog about my Dad all this was something I considered in detail. I wouldn’t have written without consent.1/2(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:20 +0100)
@otnotes @Th00ha I talk more about my experience within their story, fxn of OT, not a description of their life #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:22 +0100)
@nursefriendly @Theresabrown NYT blogger weighed in on this, #HIPAA compliance not too difficult MT @Helen_otuk : So who blogs about clients? or #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:25 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @Th00ha yes, or joint authoring? Getting approval before sharing? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:29 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #otalk we used persons story bout their occ therapy experience -but the therapist showed them the piece, then invites them 2 write their own(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:53 +0100)
@otnotes @fullyOccupied so true, you are often called to give examples in job interviews. I think they get permission for publicity stuff tho #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:18:57 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied #otalk because even though I didn’t give his details he would be identifiable. and I only told my perspective ” my story”(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:19:27 +0100)
@nursefriendly @Helen_otuk She discusses her #patients in her blogs, in her books frequently. Changes details, no harm, no foul #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:19:39 +0100)
@Th00ha @fullyOccupied @otnotes I did prac in a rural town & this did happen at a case study. #otalk got me really thinking abt confidentiality.(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:19:45 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #otalk they did and gave written permission re what it would be used for & they were v keen to control who saw/heard it, when and why.(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:19:52 +0100)
@fullyOccupied RT @otnotes : @Th00ha I talk more about my experience within their story, fxn of OT, not a description of their life #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:20:29 +0100)

@gilliancrossley @Th00ha @otnotes #otalk no, I mean ensuring you are writing “your” story so your part or perspective. not writing the other persons story(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:20:46 +0100)
@fullyOccupied ? @Helen_otuk : @Th00ha yes, or joint authoring? Getting approval before sharing? #otalk ? absolutely!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:30 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @OTAshbert hello it is #otalk tonight great to have you with us(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:36 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley @otnotes Yeap ok, I get you. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:43 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @otnotes #otalk yes I agree we need case studies. if client can identify them selves in these should we ask permission before publish?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:45 +0100)
@otnotes to some degree, the idea of giving someone a waiver to sign for you to use the case is intimidating to both, IMO. 1/2 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:53 +0100)
@nursefriendly RT @gilliancrossley : Whose story is it to tell?Is making details anonymous enough if a client/colleague can recognise themselves? #otalk (notes from event)(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:21:55 +0100)
@pd2ot Apologies #OTalk ers. I’m sloping off early as too tired to concentrate/follow. I shall read it all back tomorrow!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:22:54 +0100)
@nursefriendly @gilliancrossley Stories are everyones to tell that have experienced them, long as you respect #privacy #HIPAA & Good Taste 🙂 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:23:01 +0100)
@otnotes 2/2 obviously you’d get the written permission for a larger publication, but 4something that is ‘off the cuff’ I doubt it hpns much #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:24:00 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied #otalk I like that! If we are writing a case study client should be able to see! as they could see notes if they wanted!!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:24:14 +0100)
@nursefriendly @otnotes I’ve been blogging, reviewing #malpractice #nursing case studies for some time using actual court cases. No restrictions #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:24:43 +0100)
@wordsandbirds @nursefriendly @gilliancrossley agreed. especially as a means for sharing positive experiences #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:25:18 +0100)
@nursefriendly @otnotes Once the court cases are completed, matters are made public record, they are fair game for discussion #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:25:26 +0100)
@Th00ha @otnotes yeah, wondering how realistic it is to getting consent and all formalities? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:25:46 +0100)
@otnotes @ChrisAlterio uses cases but it’s a conglomeration of ppl and decades after the fact. Us newbies don’t have that option tho #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:25:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @otnotes just because it my not happen does not it should not? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:26:04 +0100)
@nursefriendly Be back in a few . . #otalk #hachat (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:26:18 +0100)
@otnotes @nursefriendly I hope never to have a lot of info on OT malpractice! hopefully we can avoid that! 🙂 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:26:24 +0100)
@wordsandbirds what about those who lack capacity or communication skills? is it exploiting their experiences? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:26:27 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied Yes consent crucial! I wouldn’t have posted it if he hadn’t wanted me too! #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:26:50 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk @Th00ha it would require a major commitment from your employer too, they would have to OK a waiver, might imply liability #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:27:25 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @nursefriendly yes legal issues that are already in the public domain are different. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:27:32 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @nursefriendly #otalk my concern re telling other peoples story is the impact it can have on them and what if we get it wrong..(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:27:58 +0100)
@Th00ha @wordsandbirds depends on how much info you’re giving out perhaps. Or talk to carers. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:27:59 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @otnotes there already is a fair amount of that available… HPC website in UK. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:28:19 +0100)
@gilliancrossley RT @fullyOccupied : ? @Helen_otuk : @Th00ha yes, or joint authoring? Getting approval before sharing? #otalk ? absolutely!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:28:55 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk usually in US u just get a name of ppl in disputes with license board, whether they were punished in some way. min deets #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:29:41 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @Th00ha can carers give consent on behalf of the cared for to have information made public? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:30:19 +0100)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied @Helen_otuk @Th00ha joint authorship more realistic in outpt/long term visiting sessions than acute #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:30:52 +0100)
@fullyOccupied @wordsandbirds #OTalk it’s interesting isn’t it? heard carer on radio a couple of evenings ago describing intimate details of relatives 1/2(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:31:19 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk I would think that reasonable for cases where they usually give consent for medical or other decisions. e.g. parent/child #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:31:44 +0100)
@Helen_otuk maybe a need for different approaches? RT @otnotes : joint authorship more realistic in outpt/long term visiting sessions than acute #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:32:06 +0100)
@tOTal_ability . @Helen_otuk @otnotes would love to compare other countries’ OT privacy regs #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:32:16 +0100)
@merrolee #OTalk hmm blogging is like talking on bus. Wld u ask clt permission 2 do that?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:32:26 +0100)
@fullyOccupied @wordsandbirds #OTalk needs & care – father had multiple disabilities &dementia; felt wrong 2 hear things he may have considered undignified(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:32:58 +0100)
@Th00ha @Helen_otuk not sure, but I assume the carers will hv the clients’ best interest. Would it be similar to making medical decisions? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:33:09 +0100)
@otnotes @merrolee ppl prob wouldn’t ask, but better keep it very vague- who knows who will hear you! good analogy #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:33:32 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @otnotes is that the same? medical etc decision are generally made in the best interests? Is being blogged about? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:33:45 +0100)
@charl885 @Helen_otuk @Th00ha depends on capacity to make the decision first off surely? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:35:09 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #OTalk do we think issues of privacy and dignity r equally at issue here as is confidentiality? Subtly different, but right 2 private life?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:35:11 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk depends on the case, I guess. #of caregiver blogs outnumbers healthcare pro blogs, I’m sure 1/2 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:35:21 +0100)
@charl885 @Helen_otuk @Th00ha oh ha ha hadn’t seen previous tweet! #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:35:41 +0100)
@Th00ha @Helen_otuk @otnotes maybe not directly to client’s best interest, but carers can check no harm is done? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:35:47 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied @wordsandbirds #otalk . interesting that sometimes family think its OK to disclose the personal info of others without consent(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:36:05 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk and the caregiver blogs more often are like what @fullyOccupied is discussing- less respectful #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:36:13 +0100)
@otnotes @Th00ha yes, and many give consent in teaching hosp for learning experiences, so that might be a place to approach consent #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:37:11 +0100)
@Lisa_D_OT RT @fullyOccupied : #OTalk do we think issues of privacy &dignity r equally at issue here as is confidentiality? right 2 private life? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:37:21 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Are professionals held to a different standard than family? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:37:26 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @otnotes @Helen_otuk is that because caregivers don’t have to abide my ethics etc so easier to write blogs? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:37:48 +0100)
@otnotes @fullyOccupied does anyone have a private life anymore? I can take and post pics of ne1 now with smartphone, post about companies etc #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:38:28 +0100)
@Lisa_D_OT RT @gilliancrossley : my concern re telling other peoples story is the impact it can have on them and what if we get it wrong.. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:38:42 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @merrolee #otalk ! interesting! I guess only write/ say what you are willing for everyone to read/ hear…(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:39:30 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Just because we can do something does that mean we should? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:39:38 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk yes, which is fine b/c a client is in a position of vulnerability in healthcare world. W/ fam, I guess it’s every1 4 self #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:39:57 +0100)
@otnotes essential!RT @gilliancrossley : @merrolee interesting! I guess only write/ say what you are willing for everyone to read/ hear… #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:40:20 +0100)

@otnotes @fullyOccupied also interesting, devil’s adv POV: what re the case of family blogger who unfairly portrays their provider/no consent? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:42:09 +0100)
@fullyOccupied RT @gilliancrossley : @merrolee #otalk ! interesting! I guess only write/ say what you are willing for everyone to read/ hear…(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:42:16 +0100)

@otnotes Privacy from another angle: are any other bloggers cautious of being more identified, or is it just my neuroticism? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:43:37 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Maybe not just about what is legal? But what standards should we aim for? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:44:35 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk Journal of Internet Medical Research (free online) has tried to put info on this topic out, policies to strive 4 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:45:38 +0100)
@fullyOccupied @otnotes #OTalk though there is right to reply … I think we have to demonstrate higher level of respect for privacy because it is our 1/2(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:45:51 +0100)
@merrolee #otalk sorry have to go. Also must gt tweet deck or similar on tablet. 4 got how clunky twitter is. Happy chatting(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:46:02 +0100)

@fullyOccupied @otnotes #OTalk role that has given us privilege &more intimate knowledge than otherwise would b case; person is vulnerable in that rel’ship(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:47:49 +0100)
@otnotes @fullyOccupied I agree that it is the vulnerability of the client that makes us need a higher standard #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:48:57 +0100)

@Helen_otuk ok last 10 mins folks… top thoughts? Actions to take away? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:50:12 +0100)
@otnotes @Helen_otuk haha, I was going to say that 😉 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:50:44 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @otnotes #otalk I wonder why people blog secretly? why not take ownership of what you’re saying?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:50:49 +0100)
@fullyOccupied RT @gilliancrossley : @otnotes #otalk I wonder why people blog secretly? why not take ownership of what you’re saying?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:52:00 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @gilliancrossley now that is a whole other topic? Many reasons… and is anything secret? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:52:03 +0100)
@allisulli It’s easy for me to recall the discomfort I felt when a blogger shares TMI about a client. Ithink what if someone was talking abt me? #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:52:16 +0100)
@allisulli RT @gilliancrossley : @otnotes #otalk I wonder why people blog secretly? why not take ownership of what you’re saying?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:52:44 +0100)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley Obvs I’m not anon (which poses own risks) but I tried to keep surname, location, exact practice a lil covered #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:53:05 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @nursefriendly #otalk but what if they can identify themselves?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:53:29 +0100)
@otnotes Anon bloggers more likely 2 share too much I think, but I felt like I needed 2 keep some semblance of personal privacy when I started #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:54:18 +0100)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley @otnotes It is in these anonymous blogs that I have seen the most egregious ethical violations #Otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:54:19 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @otnotes #otalk yes personal privacy and safety is essential!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:54:39 +0100)
@otnotes @allisulli agree agree agree. could name half a dozen right now #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:55:04 +0100)
@helenwebsden Can anyone recommend a good cognitive assessment for #neuro patients? We use the LOTCA currently but not 100% happy with it… #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:55:26 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @OTAshbert @otnotes #otalk yes, I suppose it depends on what they’re saying. if not mentioning others then maybe anon is OK?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:55:31 +0100)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley would a client (even if never used on blog) be hesitant to be seen by “blogger OT”? I think so, possibly #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:55:50 +0100)
@nursefriendly If you’ve been careful, they should not be able to. RT @gilliancrossley : @nursefriendly #otalk but what if they can identify themselves?(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:55:53 +0100)
@fullyOccupied @OTAshbert : @otnotes & clients can b vulnerable in non-obvious ways -may need confidentiality in aspects not immediately obvious. #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:56:48 +0100)
@Helen_otuk last 4 mins… top tips? #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:57:09 +0100)
@otnotes I don’t think any blog really stays anon anyway. Either gets shut down (TMI violations) or blogger will open up in some way #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:57:22 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley @OTAshbert @otnotes yeh I think anon is ok too. Just ensure other pples privacy as a health professional. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:58:24 +0100)
@allisulli @otnotes @gilliancrossley It may be an endorsement if it helps the therapists “expert” status, raises client esteem of their provider #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:58:28 +0100)
@allisulli @Helen_otuk Blog about someone else as if you were reading or writing about yourself #OTalk #compassion #privacy #ethics (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:59:35 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @allisulli @otnotes #otalk I don’t like it when people use the anon to say stuff they know they shouldn’t!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 20:59:49 +0100)

@nursefriendly @gilliancrossley A clever author will make takes steps to prevent that. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:00:13 +0100)
@fullyOccupied #otalk I guess remembering that blog is 4 life not just 4 Xmas..? ie what goes up there could be around a long time & b sure u r ok with it!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:00:30 +0100)
@otnotes @allisulli prob have to go even farther than that. RT Blog about someone else as if you were reading or writing about yourself #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:00:34 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @allisulli @otnotes #otalk client could read your blog and realise that you don’t breach trust on there! instead use for cpd etc..(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:00:58 +0100)
@allisulli @nursefriendly that may affect the therapist, but it doesn’t do much to redress the loss of dignity to the subject of such a #blog #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:01:18 +0100)
@nursefriendly @gilliancrossley Nature of the beast, yet important (being anonymous) for whistleblowers, revealing situations that can get fired for #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:01:18 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @nursefriendly #otalk yes thats why its important to consider! not everyones a clever author or experienced blogger(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:01:43 +0100)

@nursefriendly @gilliancrossley Many situations are brought to light, specifically because they can remain anonymous. It is prone to abuse, agreed. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:02:07 +0100)
@Helen_otuk ok folks… 9pm I have to dash for a little while… but do keep chatting i will be back later and will do grab chat tomorrow. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:02:15 +0100)

@fullyOccupied #otalk thanks all – lots of food for thought -as ever!!!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:05:26 +0100)

@allisulli @nursefriendly contact me on my email: allison.sullivan @ aic.edu. Don’t want to tweet specifics:) #blog #privacy #ethics #Otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:06:35 +0100)
@nursefriendly @gilliancrossley Lots of #blogs out there that don’t name names, yet give dates, times, situations – very risky. #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:06:46 +0100)
@nursefriendly @allisulli Can you give a hypothetical? #blog #privacy #ethics #Otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:07:10 +0100)
@otnotes @nursefriendly there was an ER doc who tweeted as leaving pt rooms and would write very condescending blog posts after. no respect1/2 #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:08:47 +0100)
@allisulli @nursefriendly Recently saw a blog by a nurse disgusted w the way a client smelled, how “stupid” client didn’t follow rx instructions #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:09:37 +0100)
@otnotes @nursefriendly 2/2 plus the times and descriptions of problems count as HIPAA identifiers. another doc lost job over bad blog choice #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:09:54 +0100)
@allisulli RT @fullyOccupied : #otalk thanks all – lots of food for thought -as ever!!!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:11:47 +0100)
@ChrisAlterio @otnotes #otalk sry I missed this chat. Narrative is license to express essential truth/maintain privacy at same time(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:26:03 +0100)
@ChrisAlterio @otnotes #otalk I would argue that you don’t need experience to express essential truth.. But for less skillful narrators like me it helps!(Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:29:40 +0100)
@otnotes @ChrisAlterio yes, you would have had great pts 2add. you’ll be glad2 know there is a high concern for privacy from the participants #otalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 21:33:31 +0100)
@nursefriendly @allisulli Unfortunate and unprofessional 😦 #OTalk (Tue, 10 Jul 2012 22:14:12 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @otnotes depends. I do own up to what I said in my blogs because it is my own experiences and analysis. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:11:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @otnotes I am more cautious about possibly someone. So, I will just say “someone online said…” #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:13:05 +0100)
@BillWongOT @otnotes if I have to use what they posted online at conferences, I will just use the exact quote only. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:14:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @otnotes @gilliancrossley I’m an exception here. I am not afraid of my OT see my blog, as it helped ME in becoming an autism expert. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:16:04 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @allisulli @otnotes if I’m doing research, I definitely will not put what people said in my info gathering process. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:19:12 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ChrisAlterio @otnotes I primarily use my experiences (directly or indirectly) for my blogs. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:21:25 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @nursefriendly agreed… Since the “damage” is permanent. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:22:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTAshbert @gilliancrossley @otnotes if that’s the case, I would actually tell my clients that I am an OT blogger. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:26:30 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley if you are the client, you have full control. If others, better check with facility’s policies. #OTalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:27:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli interesting point. For me, I don’t mind as long as I am given a heads up. #otalk (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 04:39:45 +0100)
@rebelraising Damnit I missed #OTalk on confidentiality/ ethics last night. Wanted to ask about my stand-up poetry career and OT!(Wed, 11 Jul 2012 15:40:31 +0100)
