Patient privacy

At Radboudumc, patient materials (like x-ray pictures) are used regularly for educational purposes. In principle, these materials are anonymised, which means that it is impossible to gauge from which patient a material derives. This does, however, not alter the fact that students have a duty to treat patient material with respect. The protection of the patients privacy and of materials that cannot be revealed publicly out of ethical considerations, is one of the main reasons Blackboard is used instead of an open website.
