1. Greater emphasis has been placed on the consent of minors relative to obtaining healthcare. Each state has varying conditions under which a minor is both legally competent to consent to care without parental notification or consent and circumstances where a minor may be considered an adult for the purposes of medical consent. Research your state’s statutory requirements related to the treatment of minors. Discuss the risks associated with the management of a 13 year old female with a potential, but uncertain, obstetrical complaint where her parents are in the home at the time of the response. Identify the type of consent that would apply in this situation based on your state’s legal statutes.

    Your response should be at least 300 words in length.
