Exceptions to the Rule: When Minors Get to Make Their Own Medical Decisions

Presented by: Bob Macauley, MD, FAAP, FAAHPM, HEC-C: Cambia Health Foundation Endowed Chair in Pediatric Palliative Care, Oregon Health and Science University

While 18 is the “age of majority,” there are several situations where patients younger than that are authorized to make their own medical decisions. This session will explore the minor treatment statutes, emancipation, and the mature minor doctrine, as well as current challenges relating to vaccination of minors without their parents’ consent.
