Recognizing the Emerging Ethical Agency of Adolescents

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

When scholars discuss adolescents making medical decisions, their autonomy is often overlooked. Concerns about misinformation, limited education, and experience do not correlate with their ability to act ethically. This is not solely an issue of guidance for healthcare professionals and the adolescent's family; it delves into the ethical responsibility that adolescents themselves assume. An adolescent's responsibility conflicts with their ability to make fully informed decisions with consent.
