Navigating the Maze: Consent, Confidentiality, and Access to Healthcare for Texas Youth – CHW CEU Training
August 31 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Navigating the Maze: Consent, Confidentiality, and Access to Healthcare for Texas Youth
Texas youth face many barriers to accessing health services, including complicated funding streams and confusing laws around consent to healthcare. This hands-on training will provide a deep dive into the laws that regulate legal consent to healthcare for minors, with a focus on reproductive and mental health care. We will also discuss best practices in patient confidentiality and reporting requirements. We will then provide an overview of the programs that provide reproductive care in Texas (including Title X) and the consent requirements within these programs. The training will include activities to identify personal value systems and beliefs that practitioners may bring into the clinic.
