Unlike the PATCH for Teens, our PATCH Teen Educators do NOT currently deliver this information as part of the PATCH Teen Educator Program.

However, we’ve been asked COUNTLESS times about parents / caregivers (as they play a big role, legally and developmentally!) that we created this complementary content.

This resource gives community organizations, schools, health care systems, and others the language and activities to engage groups of parents, guardians, and caregivers in a conversation. Not only do we want to provide them some context about teen rights and responsibilities in health care settings, but we also want to give tangible ways to support their young people as they become more and more involved in their health and health care decisions.

Be sure to check out our wrap-around resources to enhance the learning experience or reach to a PATCH Coach if you want additional support utilizing these materials!
