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.
