Questionnaire for patients wishing access to their records


A good idea to check the understanding of patients and accessing their medical records. However... Q 7 - Should really be the final question. Q8 - Should also have 'confusing' included as I think this is where most people may struggle when viewing their records. Q8 & Q9 - Should also tell the patient what they 'should or could' do in this instance. Q10 - Clarify who 'somebody' is . Nurse? GP, Receptionist? Cleaner?? Q10 - What might they have 'said?' Do you mean detrimental? negative? insulting? kind? positive? supportive? ... this should be clear. Q10 - Do GPs, nurses etc... really make records of their views that they can not discuss face to face with the actual patient therefore creating an 'awkward' situation?? Just some thoughts.
