This program is split between two separate programs which participants will receive three credit hours per course. Participants can register for both programs or register for one of the programs that fits his or her needs.
OSHA Annual Update: 9:00am - 12:15pm
The first course will be the OSHA update. This OSHA update will provide workplace safety information in compliance with NC OSHA regulation. THe dental staff will receive fundamental OSHA training addressing the hazards most likely encountered in the dental office. NCDOL requires ALL staff have annual training per employer in order to review their specific OSHA policies and procedures. So this training will provide vital information participants can use during their in-office training but is not a substitute for employer/employee annual training.
HIPAA Compliance: 1:00pm - 4:15pm
The second session will be the HIPAA course. Complying with HIPAA Privacy and Security rule may seem a daunting task but with a clearly outlined plan, your practice can successfully protect patient information. In light of the second round of HIPAA audits by Health and Human Services occurring at this present time, this review of the basic tenets of protection of health information is a must. This session will provide a baseline review of the HIPAA Privacy and Safety as well as a complete review of breach detection, reporting and prevention strategies. The role of business associates and risk analysis will be discussed in order to position your facility to provide the highest level of protection for patient information.
