To treat adolescents in foster care a GP must take into account the uniqueness of each situation. The legal framework regulating parental authority overs minors as well as related treatment authorizations looks quite clear in case of emergency or inside hospital procedures. But what about ambulatory care? The first article aims at clarifying the notion of parental authority, a second article will define health care implications, more particularly those concerning a GP. A third article will detail the notions of “standard treatment” as opposed to “nonstandard treatment” given to adolescents who often consult for much more complex reasons than those usually presented by youngsters in the same age group.
