An updated version of the Minors and Risk booklet is now available for Colorado, Nebraska, and Iowa. This guide is designed to increase a health care professional’s understanding when legal issues involving minors arise. It includes information on key issues such as: 
          • A parent’s rights and duties, and delegation of parental power.
          • Circumstances in which minors can provide informed consent for medical treatment.
          • Emergency prescriptions, care, and treatment for minors.
          • Child abuse and reporting.
          • Recommendations for common scenarios involving minors. 

This resource is available for COPIC insureds to download under the “Practice Management Resources” section on the Medical Guidelines and Tools page.
