    Toolkit resources will help you:

    • Understand adolescent confidentiality and consent laws in New Hampshire
    • Assess your clinic environment from a youth perspective
    • Evaluate youth satisfaction with well-care visits
    • Inform LGBTQ+ patients and their families about support resources
    • Submit policy to your local school board to promote awareness among teens and their families about the importance of annual well-care visits

    Background

    From 2017-2019 the NH Pediatric Improvement Partnership and the NH Maternal and Child Health Bureau (NH MCH) collaborated on the Adolescent and Young Adult Health Collaborative Innovative and Improvement Network (AYAH CoIIN) Project. Funded by the U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau and coordinated by the Adolescent and Youth Adult Health National Resource Center, the focus of the AYAH-COIIN was to improve adolescent and young adult access to and quality of preventive health care visits.

     

    Guided by an advisory group of NH stakeholders from the medical care, public health, and education fields in equal partnership with several NH adolescents and young adults the following resources were developed:

    • Adolescent and Youth Friendly Service Tour: Clinic Environmental Assessment Tool
    • LGBTQ+ Youth & Families Resource Guide for NH
    • Sample School District Policy: Teaching About an Annual Comprehensive Well-Visit
    • Resource List to Support Sample School District Policy: Teaching About an Annual Comprehensive Well-Visit
