The promise of a fully realized electronic health record—that is, a single, complete, and accurate record of a patient’s health information—puts clinicians in a position to do their best work. But the growing role of health information technology (HIT) comes with challenges. Come explore the ethical issues of privacy, confidentiality, and data usage that are commonplace in the HIT realm.

Speakers will define a truly ethical healthcare environment, which requires thoughtful and deliberate debate. Oncology nurses in this environment must also have the ability to identify and promote ethical behavior independently of punitive and/or legal action. Discussion will focus on the bioethical framework in the context of clinical exemplars, with deliberation on the ethical challenges related to oncology care and HIT. 

1. Identify ethical issues related to non-maleficence and the electronic health record.
2. Discuss the meaning of data integrity and fidelity.
