Health information and patient information are different types of information, otherwise they would not be named differently. But they beg the same issue. How are the countless provisions of them in Wales best described: as the outcomes of activities or of practices? My question is prompted by the obvious fact that providing health information and patient information can be matters of life-or-death. Clearly, then, providing health information and patient information in Wales imply serious ethical issues. When serious ethical issues are resolved they stimulate the evolution of codes of practice, which returns me to my question. Perhaps a debate about it might be productive.
