Join us on Thursday, May 11, 2023 from 2:00-3:30PM to learn how the federal health privacy laws apply to the provision of medications for opioid use disorder for individuals in correctional entities, especially jails, prisons, and detention centers.

This virtual training will provide an overview of the federal health privacy laws for substance use disorder treatment records and guide participants through common scenarios in which patient information may or may not be shareable.

Who should attend?
This virtual training is designed for anyone working in or with correctional facilities who may have access to health records, such as substance use treatment providers, mental health treatment providers, correctional administrators, correctional medical providers, community medical providers, and anyone who interacts with health records involving medications for substance use disorder.

This training is hosted by the DOJ Bureau of Justice Assistance's Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Use Program (COSSUP) Program, and led by subject matter experts at the CoE-PHI.
