The Teen Health Talk is a communication tool for you to use (available as an EMIS template) to improve young people's experience of primary care consultations. It's not a tool for exploring issues raised in the consultation. It has been designed specifically by a GP for effective 'fact-finding' within your 10 minute consultation time-frame. It will help you work out quickly what additional referrals and appointments need to be made for that young person.
It has been designed by a GP expert in adolescent health, Dr Stephanie Lamb, in close consultation with the many young people who have been helped by her and the team's service at The Well Centre.
CYPHP are exploring how the Teen Health Talk can be used more widely, both by GPs and other professionals such as youth workers. If you are interested in using the Teen Health Check in your practice, please contact the CYPHP team for further information.
