Youth Friendly Doctor

Youth Friendly Doctor


 

If they are to meet the needs of today’s youth, doctors need contemporary training in adolescent health issues and effective communication strategies. The Youth Friendly Doctor program was launched in April 2000. It was developed by the Foundation in consultation with doctors and other health professionals and increases the skills of GPs in several youth health issues:

  • Connecting with Young People
  • Young People, Ethics and the Law
  • Alcohol and Other Drugs
  • Sexual Health
  • Mental Health
  • Eating Disorders and Obesity

Youth Friendly Doctors are able to communicate more effectively with young people and break down many of the barriers young people face in health care.
