Management of Confidential Medical Information
I understand that CSAA requires my child's medical information in order to be able to address any medical needs she/he experiences during her/his time in residence as a boarder at the Hostel, or when taking part in activities outside the Hostel (but where the Hostel maintains a 'duty of care'). I understand that where required to meet the immediate medical needs of my child, my child’s medical information will be shared with Queensland Health staff/other qualified medical professionals, on a need-to-know basis only. I understand the information shared may be either mandatory data (e.g. Medicare number) or sensitive information (e.g. existing medical condition) or personal information (e.g. your contact details should a Queensland Health staff member/other qualified medical professional need to talk to you.
