Adolescent consent and confidentiality is an area of concern in the delivery of health care to this patient population. Lack of information in this area is a barrier to optimal health care. Studies have shown that many physicians and other clinicians who deal with these issues on a daily basis are unsure of the management guidelines established for confidential care for adolescents.
This course and the accompanying guide is designed to educate all primary care practitioners and specialists who routinely care for adolescents, regarding the federal law and Arizona legal statutes that pertain to consent and confidentiality issues for this population.
This course and toolkit should enable the targeted audience to:
• Discuss the issues of consent and confidentiality as barriers to care of the adolescent patient.
• Combine State Statutes and Federal Regulations with ethical principles to choose the best course of action in selected patient care scenarios.
• Using samples, develop policies and procedures for consent and confidentiality in the care of the adolescent patient in the participant’s own practice setting.
