'Coercion' is commonly defined as the act of governing the actions of another, by force or by threat, in order to overwhem and compel that individual to act against their will.

The practice will discuss the issue of coercion with patients and ensure they understand and accept the risks before an application for access to detailed coded data within their medical record is processed. If there are any suspicions that a patient is being coerced, then that patient will not be regestered for On-Line services and the case will be referred to a GP who will have a converstaion with the patient.
