The format is particularly suitable for journalists, communication experts and representatives of patient organisations.

The focus of the discussion will be on topics, related to the potential of communication in the Health sector:

Do we know the limitations of the health information we write and share about?

How do we legitimise our actions when talking about the health status of patients?

Where is the line between freedom of expression and the right to privacy of patients and doctors?

Why reforming the data protection sector will affect health news?

What is the liability of the doctor and the healthcare facility for sharing information about the health of the patients?

How do we understand the ethical dimensions of medical confidentiality?

Have the patients, whose health we are discussing given their consent?

Who should protect the dignity of the patient in the world of "Everything is a rating!"?

The event is free of charge and no pre-registration is required.
