Event Navigation

This webinar will cover the new law on law on confidentiality of substance use disorder patient records under 42 CFR part 2. This law was previously known as the confidentiality of drug abuse and alcohol abuse records. This was a very detailed law and everyone who works with substance use disorder patients, who are subject to this new law, should attend.

The webinar will discuss what is required of part 2 programs. A facility that receives federal assistance (such as Medicare) and hold itself out as providing substance use disorder diagnosis, treatment, or referral must follow these extensive regulations. They address the notice that must be given to the patient. It discusses patient access to medical records and what must be in the consent form. It discusses research, closure of a program, new definitions, minors, decease patient records, security of medical records, disclosure, when disclosure is prohibited and more.

If a patient is admitted to a hospital to the substance use disorder treatment floor, are you up to speed on how to comply with the many requirements of this law? What is the responsibility if the patient being treated for drug or alcohol abuse discloses he or she has abused their children? When can minors consent to treatment? When can the parents of a minor get access to their records? What is the patient commits a crime on the property? All of these questions will be answered in this webinar.
