Youth Friendly Consultation Skills
In partnership with the Maternity, Child, Youth and Paediatrics Unit in the New South Wales Ministry of Health, the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), has developed an online course around Youth Friendly Consultation Skills.
The online course aims to assist participants to:
- assess youth health problems in line with the adolescent's stage of development
- conduct a youth friendly consultation, including explaining confidentiality, negotiating to see a young person alone, and using youth friendly communication skills
- perform a health risk assessment using the HEEADSSS psychosocial screening tool
The module is presented by Clinical Professor David Bennett (Adolescent Physician), an adolescent health physician with a major interest in the development of integrated, creative health services for young people and their families.
The module is approximately 90 minutes in duration and is accredited for ACRRM Professional Development Program points.
