The privacy rules set forth in 42 CFR Part 2 governing the use and disclosure of patient information by substance abuse programs were recently revised for only the second time in the past 30 years. Understanding and complying with these rules can be daunting to even the most sophisticated substance abuse treatment program. In this program, Shipman & Goodwin LLP attorneys Stephanie Gomes-Ganhao and Bill Roberts will provide an overview of the rules and tips for how to develop a practical and compliant privacy program.
Topics will include:
- A primer on 42 CFR Part 2
- Overview of 2017 and 2018 revisions to 42 CFR Part 2
- Drafting a compliant consent form
