 Required Title X/Family Planning Trainings - 07/10/18

  1. Family Planning Staff Title X Orientation and Annual Trainings Checklists and Template Training Policies - Updated 04/23/18

2. Compliance with the state mandatory reporting laws has been a longstanding Title X requirement beginning with its inclusion in the FY 1999 appropriations language. The Federal Office of Population Affairs (OPA) has increased its efforts towards ensuring that each Title X agency is compliant with state laws regarding notification of the reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape or incest, as well as federal anti-trafficking laws. OPA and the Women’s Health Branch (WHB) will continue to closely monitor Title X agencies regarding adherence to federal and state laws, internal policies and completion and storage of yearly training documentation. The Title X Orientation webinar for the federal Title X program is also important to understand the program and its requirements.

The Local Health Director or designated staff is responsible for assuring these training requirements are met and may carry out that responsibility however she/he chooses. This component will be monitored by the Regional Women’s Health Nurse Consultants during future monitoring site visits.

 A. Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect - Updated 07/10/18

On Monday, April 16, 2018, 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm, the North Carolina (NC) Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect 2018-2020 Webinar was offered. The Family Planning and Reproductive Health Unit of the Women’s Health Branch is responsible for providing information and training about NC laws related to Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect. The Family Planning National Training Center’s (FPNTC) two “Mandated Child Abuse Reporting Law: Developing and Implementing Policies and Training Webinar and Resource Guide” do NOT count towards the completion of the NC Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect 2018-2020 Webinar training requirement.

By Thursday, June 21, 2018 close of business (COB), CURRENT and NEW Family Planning staff, staff paid with Title X funds and/or other employees the agency may require who provide direct services to FP clients must complete the archived Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect 2018-2020 Webinar training requirements listed below in steps 1 - 4. The webinar will meet the Federal/State requirements for reporting or notification of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest. The webinar will meet the 2017 and 2018 Title X/Family Planning training requirements for CURRENT and NEW staff.

Complete steps 1 - 4 below to complete the 2017 and 2018 Title X/Family Planning training requirements for CURRENT and NEW staff.

  1. Download the Black and White (PDF, 612 KB) or Color (PDF, 541 LB) webinar slide set and a handout (PDF, 342 KB). 07/10/18 - Additional questions answered after the April 16, 2018 live webinar are listed below.
    1. What or is there is a legal age for a minor (under 18) to be left alone due to parents working?

      I believe my response during the live webinar was that the law doesn’t specify a minimum age, but I thought there was guidance about this in NC’s Child Protective Services manual. The manual addresses this issue in its chapter on structured intake, via the following Question
      and Answer:

      Is the parent/caretaker leaving a child age 8 or younger alone with no supervision?

      There is no legal age established for when a child can stay at home alone; however, North Carolina fire code specifies that children under age 8 should not be locked or confined. A report alleging a child under age 6 left alone requires an immediate response. The length of time the child is left alone, along with the child’s age, and cognitive abilities factor into whether the child can be safely left alone. Some important questions to ask are: Is the child afraid to stay at home alone? Is the child providing care for siblings? Does the child know how to contact emergency personnel? How long is the child being left alone? Is the child in an isolated area?

      The manual is online at DHHS Online Manuals Chapter VIII - Protective Services. The quote above is from Section 1407, Structured Intake.


    2. Is it legally required to report to the facility supervisor or note in the patient’s chart that you have filed a report with DSS?

      Whether to tell the facility supervisor that a report has been made or will be made is not addressed by state law, but it may be addressed in local agency policies. Plus it strikes me as a good idea generally. How to document the disclosure of information is also not addressed by either HIPAA or state law, but it should definitely be documented. If an individual exercises their right to get an accounting of disclosures of their Protected Health Information, this disclosure must be included in that accounting.


    3. Are recurrent Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) in a teenager a Law Enforcement or Department of Social Services (DSS) report?

      It depends on the specific facts and circumstances.

      A report to DSS is required when a health care provider has cause to suspect a child is abused or neglected. The recurrence of STIs is an important fact, but it must be evaluated in the context of other information that is known about the teenager.

      A report to law enforcement is required only if the treating health care provider determines that the child has a serious physical injury or recurrent illness that is believed to be due to non-accidental trauma. Please note that the Decision Tool (PDF, 85 KB) addresses only reports to law enforcement. Do not use it to decide whether to report to DSS.

  2. View the archived Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect 2018-2020 Webinar. The webinar may be viewed as a group or individually.
