Primary care practitioners’ perspectives: health assessments for kids in out-of-home care 

Have you provided healthcare to kids or young people in out-of-home care (also known as kinship care, foster care, or residential care)? Researchers from CCCH and MCRI want to hear about what it has been like for you and your thoughts on how best to meet this group’s healthcare needs.

We know that providing healthcare to this group can be complicated and we want to hear from both those who do a lot of this work as well as those who don’t do much of it.

The survey takes up to 15 minutes to complete, and you can complete it anonymously.

Vax4Youth GP Survey

An important issue that arose during COVID was young people 12 to 17 years seeking vaccination without their parents’ consent. We would value your thoughts to explore this important issue so we can understand the clinical, ethical and legal implications for healthcare providers, young people and their parents.

Supporting young people to make decisions for their own healthcare and understanding when they have the maturity to do so is an issue faced by healthcare providers. What support and guidance is available to General Practitioners? How best can clinicians be supported in this area?
