An important component of Sydney Adventist Hospital's role in meeting community healthcare needs is the provision of clinical education and placements for medical, nursing and other allied health trainees. Participation of trainees may include observation and involvement in your care while under appropriate supervision.
You are free to refuse to allow a trainee to participate in your care at any time. Your refusal will not adversely affect the treatment you receive.
