Chapter 16: Informed Decision Making and the Adolescent Patient

Kristin Meade and Sarah Friebert’s chapter on informed consent and adolescents. They begin with the paradox that in the transitional period of adolescence, many adolescents have the mental capacity to make decisions even though, under the age of majority, they lack legal capacity. Again the principle of assent—shared decision making—is affirmed even as the case demonstrates difficulty. Meade and Friebert offer sound guidelines to assist families and staff in negotiating this difficult terrain.
