The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) has published a fact sheet titled "Young people and the My Health Record system".  This fact sheet contains a range of useful information. For example, young people aged over 14 are presumed to have capacity to make decisions about My Health Record, including whether to allow parents or legal guardians to have access. There are a number of processes that need to be undertaken in order for a young person to have control over their My Health Record.

For more information, go to the OAIC Fact Sheet "Young People and the My Health Record system. For specific information related to young epople, see the fact sheet about half way down the page.
