Parent and caregiver engagement — including legal consent — is a crucial component of successful efforts to increase children’s access to school health services and to create safe and supportive school environments. In this webinar, we looked at the basics for three kinds of “consent” – consent to treatment, consent to release information, and consent for insurance reimbursement. We explained applicable legal requirements, highlighting where state law and practice may come into play, and review key questions that might arise. We concluded with practical suggestions and strategies from the field on how to obtain consents.
