Confidentiality & HIV
1.5 General CLE Credits
Overview: HIV+ individuals often find that the privacy of their status is regularly overlooked by healthcare workers, social workers, and others who inadvertently disclose their HIV/AIDS status. The disclosure is often emotionally devastating and financially disastrous. Fortunately, California courts have long recognized the right to privacy for those with HIV/AIDS. This training will discuss the common law and statutory law protections that safeguard confidentiality. We will also analyze various violations of this right and the remedies for these violations. Sample demand letters and complaints will also be reviewed.
