Presented by Jessica Mindlin from the Victims Rights Law Center, 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 acess state and national resources addressing care to minor sexual assault victims

The National Protocol fof 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. Don't Miss your opportunity to participate in this webinar on Adolesent Issues: Consent, Confidentiality and Other Considerations. This SAFEta Source webinar is presented as a part of the SAFE Technical Assistance Project. This project is a cooperative agreement between the Office on Violence Against Women and the International Association of Forensic Nurses.
