For Social Workers and Counselors

 MAILED:  Nov. 5, 2003

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education will sponsor two programs for social workers, counselors and human service professionals on Wednesday, Dec. 3.

The programs will deal with the emergence of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, including The Privacy Standards and other requirement standards that will affect ethical and client boundary issues for all human service professionals.

Dr. Nicholas Smiar, professor of social work and a former chair of the department of social work at UW-Eau Claire, will present “Understanding HIPAA: The Privacy Standards” from 8:30 to 11:45 a.m. and “Ethics and Boundaries: The Impact of HIPAA” from 12:30 to 4:45 p.m. Both programs will be held at the Plaza Hotel and Suites in Eau Claire.

Tuition is $69 for the morning program (.3 CEUs) and $89 for the afternoon program (.4 CEUs). A 20 percent discount is available for attending both programs — $125 (includes .7 CEUs and lunch).
