Kentucky’s children’s advocacy centers are committed to maintaining appropriate confidentiality and privacy practices to protect the children and families served. Close to 40 individuals representing ten of Kentucky’s children’s advocacy centers participated in training on February 10, 2021 to ensure they are up to date and in compliance with HIPAA’s medical privacy requirements. This one-hour training hosted by CAC-Kentucky was presented by Sarah Spurlock, an attorney with Stites & Harbison, practicing in the firm’s Louisville office. Sarah is a member of the firm’s Health Care Service Group and Co-chair of the firm’s Privacy & Data Security Group. Sarah advises clients on privacy and information security laws, including health information privacy regulations, and data breach prevention and response. Her practice also includes regulatory and transactional health care law and health care litigation. Sarah is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US).
Providing statewide, specialized training is a key function of CAC Kentucky. Additional training opportunities are added throughout the year and include Advanced Topics in TF-CBT and Medical Peer Review.
