Law & Ethics TRAINING
The Department of Behavioral Health invites you to join us for our Law & Ethics training webinar on Tuesday, July 28 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Upon completion of the training, attendees will be able to:
1. Explain the expansion of minor consent laws to include treatment for injuries caused by intimate partner violence, with clarity on what to advise a teenage client who says in therapy that he or she has been injured as a result of such violence, as well as the obligation to report child abuse;
2. Articulate how gaps in state law addressing the involuntary hold processes (5150 patients) create concerns for those involved in the medical clearance step and confusion over the 72 hour clock;
3. Describe how the law has changed regarding an individual’s right to own or purchase a firearm if they have been hospitalized more than once in a 365 day period of time;
4. Explain to teen-aged patients how minor consent law permits them in certain circumstances to consent to their own medical care, including outpatient behavioral health services;
5. Describe how the 2017 regulatory change to SUD confidentiality laws (42 CFR Part 2) impacted what must be on a consent form before Part 2 SUD information can be released to a third party, and how that might change if the August 2019 proposed Final Rule is adopted; and
6. Educate other non-treating provider members of a homeless outreach “high utilizer” multi-disciplinary team the form of patient consent that must be in place before behavioral health providers are permitted to share confidential behavioral health information with other non-treating provider members of the team.
