Course Description:

The Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (the “Privacy Rule”) established, for the first time, a set of national standards for the protection of certain health information. This article provides a summary which explains the standards for the use and disclosure of individuals’ health information.

 

This is a detailed article that identifies who is covered by the Privacy Rule and describes what information is covered by the Privacy Rule. Finally it identifies who can legally receive disclosed information. This publication provides excellent information for the mental health professional, as confidentiality is a core element of the therapeutic process. This course provides the practitioner with a great deal of much needed information to protect themselves and their clients.  Although courses regarding HIPPA are typically considered dry and boring, it is important for the practicing clinician to understand the rules and applications from the perspective of the federal government, this course allows the practitioner to read the rules and summary complied by the Health and Human Service Department.

 

 Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionist who may work in team or multidisciplinary environments. This course is designed for both clinicians and administrators who are leaders in their agencies. It is particularly appropriate for supervisors, midlevel and upper level managers. It is targeted for intermediate and advanced practitioners.

 

This course may meet mandatory continuing education requirements for license renewal in the area of law and confidentiality.  Please see your specific state board for details.
