When children and youth access services from more than one organization, the various organizations often need to exchange information to coordinate services effectively. To do this in a way that complies with the different legal specifications on the sharing of information, consent needs to be obtained. An integrated care model of consent allows service providers to share client information and work together in a coordinated manner. A new report, developed by the Student Support Leadership Initiative, looks at issues related to consent and confidentiality. EENet has developed a Research Report Round-up of the report “Helping Children, Youth and their Families: Integrating Care and Respecting Client Confidentiality.”
Research Report Round-ups are brief summaries of research reports, presented in a user-friendly format.
You can read the full Research Report Round-up on the EENet website.
