OCR Helps Consumers Understand HIPAA: OCR has posted a series of factsheets, in different languages, to help consumers understand their rights under HIPAA.  These are complimented by a series of YouTube videos for consumers (one of which is targeted at providers and describes how to establish basic safeguards).  It's pretty perfunctory, but is a good starting point for "civilians" to get a rudimentary understanding of how HIPAA affects them and what it can do for them. 

OCR has also published a series of MedScape CME modules for physicians on HIPAA, here, here and here (you gotta sign up for MedScape, but you get CME credit, so it's probably worth it.
