FREE Webinar | Partnering with Parents to Reduce Adolescent Risk – Medical Home to Home Sweet Home
It’s a statistic you’re probably familiar with – risk behaviors cause 75% of adolescent morbidity and mortality. Yet, teens are among the lowest utilizers of healthcare – often receiving only an annual well-visit or sports physical.
As providers, this significantly impacts our ability to provide ongoing risk-reduction counseling to address the multitude of experiences, peer influences and physical and behavioral changes that occur outside of the office.
Developing effective strategies that enable honest, meaningful, two-way communication between patient and provider is a critical first step in adolescent risk reduction.
Helping parents adopt and employ these same communication strategies on a daily basis with their teen closes a critical gap – and strengthens the coordination of care between provider, parent and patient.
This webinar will explore::
- Tips and techniques for connecting with teens for effective risk reduction communication and counseling
- Best practices for engaging parents both in the office and when they return home
- Resources to support both the clinical staff and parents in adolescent risk reduction strategies
