A Qualified Defense of Legal Disclosure Requirements
Ken Kipnis provides a thoughtful and provocative argument in favor of unqualified medical confidentiality (Kipnis 2006). Although I agree with a number of his points, I am not certain that his argument extends beyond the specific case scenario he posits (and even Kipnis significantly limits the scope of the cases he addresses). Whether or not his argument can be applied to other situations, I have a broader concern related to his recommendation regarding legal disclosure requirements.
