How to Engage Youth in Their Health Care

Wed, 27 Feb, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Wed, 27 Feb, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This webinar is co-sponsored by the National Center for Medical Home Implementation and Got Transition the National Health Care Transition Center.

Youth should feel empowered to function as independently as possible with an acknowledgment of their own strengths in managing their own health care needs as emerging adults. Coordination of youth, family, and provider expectations enable youth to optimize their ability to assume adult roles in their own health care at the appropriate time. This webinar will provide practical examples of how primary care pediatric providers can support youth to understand their role and responsibilities regarding managing their health care needs, especially as they transition from pediatric to adult care. It will also highlight the partnership between the pediatrician and parents or guardians in preparing youth for this transition prior to the actual transfer of care. Resources will be shared that support implementation of the clinical guidance outlined in "Supporting the Health Care Transition From Adolescence to Adulthood in the Medical Home"-a report authored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American College of Physicians. These resources will include tools from the "Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition", developed and tested by Got Transition, the National Health Care Transition Center, and designed to assist practices in improving and measuring their health care transition process.

This is the first of a four part webinar series hosted by The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and its National Center for Medical Home Implementation. Learn more about "The Medical Home in Pediatrics: The HOW TO Webinar Series".
