Full text
16. In addition to the cases provided for in the first paragraph of section 15, members may communicate information that is protected by professional secrecy to prevent an act of violence, including a suicide, where the members have reasonable cause to believe that there is an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to a person or an identifiable group of persons.
However, members may only communicate the information to a person exposed to the danger or that person’s representative, or to the persons who can come to that person’s aid.
Members may only communicate such information as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information is communicated.
