24.4.2 How to assure confidentiality
Assure the person about to undergo testing that the result is confidential, and emphasise the following points:
- The result will only be shared with him or her.
- He/she decides to whom to disclose the result of the test.
- The result will only be provided to another person with his/her written consent. If the result of the test is needed to ensure appropriate clinical care, explain the advantages of sharing the result with the medical team.
