transp medical records confidential
In any response to gender-based violence, there will likely be a point where two worlds will collide: The criminal justice world and the medical community  - law enforcement, prosecutors, and even defense lawyers will need or want to get ahold of information and/or records from medical providers. And depending on circumstance, medical service providers will, or should, object to handing over information or records. All professions need to know what is protected from disclosure, how it is protected, and whether there is a means to get needed information while protecting the rights of the victim/patient we serve.
