Ethical and Professional Guidance

It will also be of interest and use to other clinical and healthcare workers as well as to university staff where patient recordings are made available for learning and teaching. Learn about the ethical principles that underpin the guidelines.

How to use this site

There are a number of issues you need to be aware of if you want to safely use clinical patient recordings in your learning and teaching. You may have to address some or all of these issues depending on your project. This site contains five tutorials to help you work through these issues but before you begin look at an overview of the process.
