Event description

Description

Why?
Fresno County has some of the highest adolescent sexually transmitted disease (STD) and teen birth rates in the state. There is a demonstrated need for teen-friendly sexual and reproductive health services in Fresno, however, it has been demonstrated that concerns about being able to consent for and access services confidentially may prevent some young people from accessing essential care.
This 2.5 hours training workshop led by legal and clinical experts will feature evidence-based clinical best practices for the delivery of a youth-centered approach to sexual and reproductive health care in the context of existing California Minor Consent Laws. Join us to learn, share, and connect with a community of providers serving Fresno County youth.

What Will You Learn?

• Data demonstrating high rates of STDs and teen birth in Fresno County
• A review of CA Minor Consent and Confidentiality laws presented by the Senior Attorney from the National Center for Youth Law
• Updates on policies that seek to protect and expand youth access to sexual and reproductive health care
• Current research demonstrating youth need for minor consent and confidential services
• Best practices for implementing Minor Consent and Confidentiality Laws in the youth patient visit
• Insights from Community Regional Medical Center Pediatrics Team on their approach to implementing CA Minor Consent laws and providing youth-centered care
• Communication tips and resources for discussing sexual and reproductive health topics with adolescent patients
