Section 8 - Youth and Medical Consent

When Should a Youth Complete Medical Consent Training?

  • If a youth (16 or 17 year old) in CPS conservatorship (care) has court approval to make decisions about all or part of his or her own medical care, then he or she must also complete Medical Consent Training.
  • The youth must still give medical information to the CPS caseworker, and is expected to make medical decisions in his or her best interest.
