A study conducted by the University of Saskatchewan finds patients and clinicians differ on recording medical visits, CTV News Edmonton reports. The study revealed more than 61% of patients believe they should be allowed to document their treatment; however, only 28% of medical professionals agree. Alberta Health Services has responded to this trend by banning patients from taking photos in its facilities. “We’re definitely seeing an increase in it,” University of Alberta Chair of Emergency Medicine Bill Sevcik said. “We see people taking pictures, selfies in care spaces. I always ask why, what’s their motivation, and sometimes its morbid curiosity.”
