Class Summary - Today students used a resource from the PATCH program to learn what their rights were regarding health provider care. It talks about confidentiality, alone time, setting up an appointment, insurance concerns and other topics that may be questions regarding teenagers and their relationships with health care providers. Students are always encouraged to work with their parents as supports with these topics, but it is also important to start gaining some independence regarding health care needs.
