Are adolescents healthy l.jpg
Are Adolescents healthy?

  • Wide range of psychosocial and health risk behaviors exist in adolescence

  • Health and social choices adolescents make place them at risk and establish adult habits

  • Increased stress and mental health issues impact health


The health visit missed opportunity l.jpg
The health visit; missed opportunity

  • 74% of teens had a health check up in the past 2 years

  • Wished to discuss an average of 6.7 topics

    • 1/3 had not discussed any of the topics they wanted to talk about

    • Only 12% discussed all their desired topics

  • Only 50% had counseling when risk factors present

    • 28% counseled if used alcohol

    • 38% counseled if inadequate exercise

    • 40% counseled if smoking

Rethinking adolescent primary care l.jpg
Rethinking Adolescent Primary Care

  • Better ways to efficiently assess the wide range of current health behaviors and risks

  • More effective counseling

    Better ways to motivate teens to make changes to improve their health


Challenges l.jpg
Challenges

  • Wide range of health risks and key issues missed in clinical interviews or a few questions

  • Existing screening with GAPS

    • AMA Guidelines for Adolescent Preventive Services

      • Screening surveys for younger/older teens and parents (70-80 questions). Initial and follow up forms

      • Assesses health risk and protective factors

    • Comprehensive content

    • Cumbersome to maintain paper survey system

      Does not address key issues like anxiety, alcohol, strengths


Healthy teens projects l.jpg
“Healthy Teens” Projects

  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Prescription for Health National Program

    • Funded in both Round One and Round Two

  • Develop new approaches to health counseling in the preventive health visit

    • Only adolescent focused project

  • Utilize technology to optimize time available to clinician to discuss issues

    • Comprehensive health history/screening adapted from GAPS

    • Branching question path, if positive for risk behaviors

    • Additional assessments such as CRAFFT, eating disorders, sports risk screening

    • Assessed motivation and self-efficacy for change for 5 health behaviors

    • Confidentiality and Health Messages included during screening
