Need Help with Assignment –
These are the requirements for the assignment
- 1. Explain what HIPPA is and what the federal law's position on patient privacy is. Look up and list two laws (statutes) in the Act.
2. Research and list 3 state laws on patient privacy using the state you were assigned in a previous announcement. Because laws are often very long, do NOT copy and paste what you found. Instead, provide the citation for the 3 laws and specify whether this a statute or regualtion. Next, read through the laws and summarize the gist of EACH law in 2-3 sentences.
3. Read the court case Tarasoff v. Regents of University of California (link below). This is a case where the court tried to balance patient confidentiality with a therapist's duty to warn. Do you agree with the court's decision? Why or why not? Provide a discussion in light of HIPPA and the state laws that you found for Q2. Make sure you explain your reasoning.
- The assignment must be typed using Times New Roman, font 12, be double spaced and between 3-5 pages. You must use in-text citations for any sources and ideas that are not your own. A bibliography (single spaced) is also required. Also, please review my comments and follow my feedback from Assignment 1. I will be looking for whether improvments were made in Assignment 2.
