When new users are added to the TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR), the permissions they have default to the permissions set for their role. However, you can modify each user's permissions to be distinct from their role permissions. For example, if only one of your staff members creates and manages Qnaires, you can grant only that staff member permission to edit Qnaires, even though it differs from their role's permissions.

📌 Note: The role permissions and user-specific permissions are additive. For example, if a user is assigned a role with permission to access patient charts but that permission is then removed from the user-specific permissions, the user still has access to the patient charts because of the role permissions.

📌 Note: If you are using role-based access control, you must modify a user's permissions via the role. See Managing user roles (role-based access control) for more information.
