Health Center Compliance Intensive: Advanced Concepts

Washington, DC US
October 3, 2018 to October 4, 2018

Designed to support and strengthen the skills of health center compliance officers, this two-day training is designed for experienced compliance officers.  Attendees should be familiar with the seven elements of a compliance program and have some experience in health center compliance risk areas. The curriculum includes updates on substantive compliance risk areas and enforcement actions (including relevant updates on Section 330, federal grants management, HIPAA, and 340B), as well as training to help develop the skills necessary to be an effective compliance officer (assessing risks, investigating issues, addressing ethical concerns). 

This training will include:

  • Educational sessions on substantive compliance risk areas and recent enforcement actions; and,
  • A discussion session on common challenges facing health center compliance officers when implementing a compliance program and responding to compliance risks, (moderated by FTLF’s Compliance Counsel, a former health center compliance officer).

Please note that registration for this training is limited to allow for conversation, networking and one-on-one support from the trainers.  Be sure to register early as these sessions often SELL OUT.
