380.845.01 SEMINAR IN ADOLESCENT HEALTH
Synthesizes knowledge acquired across a range of courses in adolescent health and development and focuses that knowledge in a public health framework from both a domestic and international perspective. Explores ethical issues in research with adolescents, cultural competency in adolescent health and the impact of policy on adolescent health using case studies and interactive discussion.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to: a. Describe ethical issues in research with adolescents (e.g., minor consent; parental notification; research with especially vulnerable populations; certificates of confidentiality). b. Recognize the role cultural identity plays in one’s understanding of researcher perspectives/assumptions and those of culturally divergent subjects in adolescent health. c. Apply a conceptual approach to understand the role that policies play in improving adolescent health using industrialized and developing world examples (e.g., Title X, graduated driver licensure, school health policies).
