Using Personal Mobile Devices for Clinical Photos in General Practice

Medical photography has long had an important role in the assessment and management of patients in general practice. Benefits of taking clinical images include: tracking changes over time, improved patient care and clinical communication through real-time sharing of images and improved teaching and training. With most mobile phones and tablets equipped with high-quality cameras, significant memory capacity and wireless technology, it is easier than ever to capture and distribute clinical photos of patients.

While clinical photos are a useful tool, care needs to be taken to ensure patient privacy, particularly when photos are taken on a personal mobile device that belongs to the clinician and is used outside of the workplace.

These webinars highlight considerations when taking clinical photos on a personal mobile device that belongs to a clinician and is used outside of the workplace. In particular, they will provide an overview of potential hazards, consent, practice policies and procedures, data breaches and legalities.
