Maintaining privacy in the complex operative reality of public psychiatric services is not easy. Many operational doubts arise and psychiatrists encounter difficulties in application of the privacy norms, partly due to the clinical and treatment peculiarities of the psychiatric domain and partly to organizational and structural limits. The risk addressed in this work is that the apparent complexity of the privacy norms may be perceived by psychiatrists in the public sector simply as a further bureaucratization of the doctor-patient relationship rather than as an opportunity to institute greater safeguards of patients' rights. Hence, the Authors aim to clarify the key points of the law, integrating them with the classic issues of confidentiality, in order to outline the goals, provide suggestions as to how best to adapt practice to conform to these norms, and highlight ways to simplify procedures. The Authors conclude by expressing the hope that the principles embodied in the privacy norms may become an integral part of the cultural heritage of territorial psychiatric services.
