Adolescent Issues: Consent, Confidentiality and Other Considerations

This webinar will offer education and practical solutions to clinicians who are challenged by adolescent issues. At the end of the event, attendees will be able to:

  • Know where to look for the laws that govern minors’ sexual assault-related care and rights in your jurisdiction
  • Identify 3 or more of the ways in which the rights of minor sexual assault victims differ from the rights of adult survivors
  • Distinguish between what health care providers must, may and may not disclose about their minor patients’ when subject to mandatory reporting laws and
  • Better access state and national resources addressing care to minor sexual assault victims

The National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations of Adults and Adolescents encourages a victim centered approach to caring for patients who have experienced sexual violence. Adolescent patients can present challenging legal issues for SANES and other providers who need to know whether (and when) a minor’s care is confidential, who may consent to a minor patient’s care, and other age-specific victim issues.
