At this comprehensive one-day seminar you will gain an understanding of voluntary and involuntary admission and discharge issues; patient/client treatment rights; informed consent, confidentiality and privilege; the release of information; reporting requirements, HIPAA, HITECH, and much more, that will help you stay on top of issues that arise in everyday clinical situations.
