New Pedialink educational courses are now available, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to increase awareness of Adolescent Sexual Health and to support pediatricians and other health care providers in improving awareness and knowledge of sexual and reproductive health care for adolescents and young adults.
Three courses (‘Let’s Talk About Sex’, ‘Affirming Medical Care for LGBTQ Adolescents’ and ‘Confidential Adolescent Care and Billing’) are now available here.
As part of this series, four videos were created to demonstrate conversations with adolescent patients about sexual health care. These videos include:
The AAP also offers pediatricians a review and education program, the Self-Assessment Program of PREP® The Curriculum. Through this program, pediatricians are able to assess where their pediatric knowledge is strongest and where they may need to grow. This program makes it easy to see the knowledge gaps and give the tools needed to close these gaps.
Physicians for Reproductive Health's Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health Education Program (ARSHEP) has created a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum for residency programs, providers, and other professionals who serve adolescents.
