In order to align with statutory training requirements, this session runs from 2:45pm to 5:30pm. Breaks will be provided.
The first 2 hours of this 3-hour workshop is designed to meet the 2-hour confidentiality and privilege training requirements for certified advocates under Oregon law.
In this interactive workshop we will discuss questions such as: What does it mean to have advocate privilege in Oregon? Are verbal releases sufficient? Is everyone on a college campus mandated to report sexual assault? Do all Oregon health care providers have to report domestic violence and/or sexual assault? Join us as we review the most relevant Oregon and federal privacy laws, summarize mandatory reporting, discuss how to ensure referrals advance survivors‘ privacy interests, and share tools and practices to help providers navigate the increasing complexity of victims‘ privacy rights. The workshop will include reflective exercises, case scenarios, and issue spotting activities. The 3rd hour of the workshop will be devoted to an in~depth discussion of survivor privacy issue in response to participant priorities. Possible discussion topics include whether conﬁdentiality survives the death of the victim; privacy and coordinated community response and fatality review teams; the interaction of state, tribal and federal privacy laws; best practices regarding use of electronic devices; co-located advocates; shared client services tracking and reporting databases; and more. Bring us your questions, your queries, your concerns and your confusion. Let's sort them out together!
