FY22 PATCH for Providers Workshops
This 90-minute workshop provides an authentic perspective on ways health care teams can more effectively communicate and build relationships with teens while planning for and managing a successful health care transition. It is led by a group of trained PATCH Teen Educators under the supervision and support of their PATCH Site Coordinator, ensuring content and learning objectives are delivered with fidelity.
|The PATCH workshop was very informative and thought provoking. It really shed light on the teen perspective and ignited a passion to make sure they truly understand their rights and feel safe, protected, and educated - PATCH for Providers Participant|
Practice Gap and Needs
Health care transition for youth and young adults is a priority for many U.S. health care and public health entities. There is a significant impact on individuals, as well as systems at large, when a structured and intentional transition process from pediatric to adult health care is not integrated into routine care. Youth and young adults are more likely to disengage, delay, or inappropriately use health services into adulthood resulting in poorer health outcomes and higher costs.
Persistent interpersonal barriers hinder open and engaging conversations between adolescents and health care providers. Some young people even choose to forgo services to avoid the potential realities of stigma, confidentiality breaches, and judgement from their health care providers – particularly in discussing more personal health behaviors and topics.
