I was just having a discussion this week about the issue of consent with teens, so the timing of this is perfect: one of the Tribal Forensic Healthcare project’s September webinars is Adolescent Consent and Privacy Issues. The session will be held September 16th from 3-4:30pm ET. As with all of their webinars, CEs are available and free. Click through for all of the details.
From the site:
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of nurses, physicians, and other health and legal professionals involved in the care of pediatric victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe the legal basis for minor consent to healthcare treatment in general.
- Describe the legal basis for minor consent for sexual assault identification and treatment.
- Describe the interplay of HIPAA requirements with minor consent under state law.

Would love something on this topic that is open for Canadians to register for. Let me know if you see anything on this topic webinars etc as this one is only for those in the USA.
Thank you for all your great resources!!!
I would love to be able to be more tuned in to Canadian webinars, since we have such a large Canadian readership here. I will happily post offerings if I hear about them (so feel free to send any my way, FHO readers). In the meantime, although not a webinar, I did run across this, which may shed light on the issue: http://www.royalcollege.ca/portal/page/portal/rc/common/documents/bioethics/section1/case_1_5_2_e.html
