Documentation and Patient Confidentiality 20-364720 4 Hours

The laws and regulations governing the confidentiality of substance use disorder records were written out of great concern about the potential use of substance use disorder information against individuals, causing individuals with substance use disorders not to seek needed treatment.

A risk-managed approach to documentation is a best practice to protect both the client and the professional. 

This course will explore 42 CFR part 2, HIPAA, and documentation of substance abuse therapy.

This course will award 4 continuing education hours.  Please see the board approval box for course approvals.
