2 Clinical Continuing Education Hours for Social Workers
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 Public Law 104-191 was designed to protect patients’ information and ultimately changed the way clinicians and clinical office staff manage their practice and client relationships.
In this workshop, we will examine the most up-to-date responsibilities that clinicians have to their clients, colleagues and the profession while we address some of the more frequently asked questions on managing your daily practice. For those who work with adolescents, we will review important ethical and legal considerations with confidentiality, privacy and information sharing as it relates to this population. You’ll leave with applicable advice and processes as well as a better understanding of when it is appropriate, under the Privacy Rule for a health care provider, to share protected health information of a patient who is being treated for a mental health condition.
April 6th, 2017 – 10:00am to 12:00pm
