It is widely used by patients to seek diagnoses, research drugs and find out details about doctors.
However, the notion of a medic using Google to research a patient is considered a breach of trust.
But now, the authors of a new medical paper have claimed that doctors should, in some cases, be able to use the popular Internet search engine to seek information on the people they are caring for.
The reason? Because sometimes it is necessary to protect patients – and others – from harm, say Maria Baker and Daniel George, co-authors of the paper in the Journal of General Internal Medicine
so your doctor should spy on YOU ??? hmm so much for trust ….
