This session is an introduction to professional, legal and ethical issues concerning young people and their health.

 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Identify the major professional, legal and ethical issues concerning adolescents
  • State the legal ages at which young people can participate in various activities
  • Explain why legal ages at which young people can participate in various activities exist

 

In regard to adolescence there are a number of professional, legal and ethical issues. They are:

  • Professional codes - concern standards of conduct that professionals must adopt in their care of adolescents
  • Relevant legal considerations - relate to adolescent capacity to consent to medical treatment, assessment of that capacity, the legal duty of confidentiality and legal protection from maltreatment
  • Ethical considerations - to grant young people as much self determination of their own affairs as they are capable of versus the need to protect them
  • Relevant legal ages - at which young people deemed to have capacity to undertake activities

This session represents a brief introduction to the above issues though many of them are dealt in greater depth in the follow-on sessions in this module.
