Patient Relationship Disclaimer
- Hub: ECHO Sydney Local Health District, Australia (ECHO SLHD)
- Spoke: Healthcare providers who participate in ECHO SLHD.
- Session: A weekly video conferenced discussion between the Hub team and Spoke clinicians including a brief presentation by the Hub team, in-depth case-based presentation(s) presented by participants (Spoke) and recommendations on cases provided to participants.
ECHO SLHD de-identified patient case presentations do not create or otherwise establish a provider-patient/client relationship between any Hub clinician and any patient whose case is being presented in a Session.
The Spoke understands that advice from Hub clinicians are recommendations only and do not in any way replace the diligence and professional expertise to be exercised by the Spoke with respect to their patients. SLHD and Hub clinicians do not have any liability for any injury, loss or damage caused by use of the information provided during the Sessions.
The Hub may provide a Spoke with information about referral options for a patient. However, if a Spoke wishes to refer a particular patient to a specialist service that should be done outside of this project.
