Deepen your team’s understanding of minor consent laws, and explore best practices for providing confidential care to adolescents. By the end of this Spark, participants will be able to state the legal requirements for minor consent and distinguish between laws, policies, and best practice regarding minor consent.
Sparks are free, ready-to-use, and include a PowerPoint presentation, a facilitator script, and follow-up materials. They are designed for providers or staff to deliver in 15-30 minutes at staff meetings or professional development opportunities. Sparks can be facilitated by providers or staff in any role, and are specifically designed to “spark” discussion and reflection among a multidisciplinary audience.
This resource was developed by the Adolescent Health Initiative and adapted in partnership with the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and People's Community Clinic.
