The Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorders webinar is scheduled for May 16 from 8 - 10 am MT.
This webinar will cover the new law on confidentiality of substance use disorder (SUD) patient records under 42 CFR part 2. This law was previously known as the confidentiality of drug abuse and alcohol abuse records. The new law was effective in 2017, and anyone or any facility that is subject to these requirements should attend this webinar to learn important updates.
- Recall that the federal law on drug and alcohol records has been rewritten and is now known as confidentiality of SUD records
- Discuss when a minor can consent to the treatment of SUD
- Explain that a special consent form is needed to release the medical records of a patient treated for SUD in a part 2 program
- Describe when a report of a violation must be reported and to whom
is intended for anyone who takes care of patients in
a part 2 program. This includes staff that takes care of patients in a program
that is federally assisted and who holds themselves out as providing care and
treatment to patients who have a substance use disorder (SUD). This includes the
program directors, risk managers, health information management director and
staff, nurses, physicians, mid-level providers, compliance officers and
hospital legal counsel. It includes both inpatient and outpatient treatment
facilities. It includes clinicians who use a controlled substance for
detoxification or maintenance treatment of withdrawal of a SUD who hold a DEA
