Part Two: NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics, Principle II - Confidentiality and Privileged Communication
Recorded on Friday, February 12, 2021
A Recorded Webinar
This webinar will cover the second ethical principle of the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics, Confidentiality and Privileged Communication. Principle II focuses on treatment providers’ responsibility to protect the confidentiality of clients. This presentation will include a review of the latest legislation on 42 USC 290dd-2(b), which migrates a portion of the substance use disorder confidentiality regulations into HIPAA. Participants will be presented with both an update about and a discussion of the integration of the amended 42 USC 290dd-2. A review of the laws and ethical principle will also include discussion on the limits to confidentiality; when, with whom, and how information can be shared; and confidentiality as it applies to specific populations, such as minors and those in the criminal justice system. After a concise review of the second principle, the webinar will focus on case examples to highlight common ethical dilemmas that treatment providers face in everyday practice.
