Training Overview Description

Description

This webinar will review the latest legislation on 42 USC 290dd-2(b), which migrates a portion of the substance use disorder confidentiality regulations into HIPAA. Participants will be presented with both the update and a discussion of the integration of the amended 42 USC 290dd-2. In addition, a review of the most current regulations put out by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will be presented. A reconciliation between the new statute and the most recent regulations will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the elements of the new 42 USC 290dd-2(b) which alters the older 42 USC 290dd-2(b) as it applies to patient confidentiality.

  • Explain the basic components of 42 CFR part 2, the confidentiality regulations derived from 42 USC 290dd-2.

  • Explain how to balance care coordination for patients with SUDs while also maintaining confidentiality of personally identifiable health care data.

Who Should Attend

Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, professional counselors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters.
