Recommendation 3/CNECV/2022 on the Informed Consent involving minors: ethical and legal requirements

Informed Consent involving minors has often raised questions among healthcare professionals, as well as between young people and their parents. The subject was recently under social debate in Portugal, at the time of the initiative of voluntary vaccination of minors. In this context, the National Council of Ethics for the Life Sciences (CNECV) considered it pertinent to reflect on the issue of consent concerning minors (children and young people) for health interventions or biomedical research purposes.
