ETHICS HIPAA CE Course
This is a 3 CE credit Ethics course for Psychologists and School Psychologists (APA). HIPAA is a federal law pertaining to confidentiality of paper and electronic client/patient information and records and includes procedures and penalties pertaining to patient personal medical information. Psychologists must be aware of this federal law, how it affects you as a “health care practitioner,” procedures required for ensuring confidentiality of client medical records and personal health-care information, and potential penalties for violating these laws.
HIPAA is a federal law and supersedes state law protecting healthcare information, and ethical standards of professional organizations. Now is the time to complete this home-study course and obtain your Ethics CE credits to be fully informed about these laws and how to protect client confidentiality under the law.
Course Objectives – Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1) State the basic concept and principles of the Ethical Standard of the BACB or APA, pertaining to client confidentiality.
2) Identify the key components of HIPAA law.
3) Identify the primary concerns or reasons for creation of HIPAA by the federal government.
4) State the APA Ethical standards regarding confidentiality as applicable.
5) Identify different steps that may be required for paper records versus electronic records or client billing information that needs to be safeguarded under HIPAA law.
6) Identify at least 3 steps that can be taken to aid in ensuring protection of client information under HIPAA.
