Many of the rules regarding confidentiality have changed in recent years in response to new technologies for storing and transmitting information. In addition, the rules regarding sharing records with patients, releasing records of minors, responding to subpoenas and court orders, and implementing mandatory reporting laws can sometimes be complicated. This home study will review the these and other issues surrounding confidentiality. Neither record keeping requirements nor child abuse laws will be covered in detail in this home study.
