Background What is adolescence? More recently the term has expanded to include young adulthood, up to 25 years of age. Adolescent health care considerations Increased risk-taking behaviours and psychosocial issues, contributing to morbidity and mortality. Rarely access routine health care, so any contact should be an opportunity for preventative health care.

Planning for transition to appropriate adult services should start well before age Confidentiality and consent Be explicit about confidentiality requirements and obtain permission prior to contacting other relevant professionals, such as school or youth agencies. Mature minors can give informed consent if they have sufficient understanding and intelligence to enable full comprehension of what is proposed [as per Australian common law - Gillick competency.

Younger adolescents may sometimes be considered mature minors and be capable of providing informed consent depending on the nature of the proposed intervention. Interventions include history, physical examination, procedures and treatments. Adolescents involved with child protection services require special consideration with respect to confidentially and consent. The relevant State-based service may be able to assist when consent cannot be obtained in the usual way.

Parents should be asked if they have any concerns prior to leaving the room and again at the close of the interview. Try to use open-ended, non-judgemental questions that avoid assumptions. General statements instead of personalising questions can be less intrusive e. What about your friends? And you? It is often not possible to cover every aspect of the interview in a single encounter. You may focus on the most releavent areas for your patient or population.

You may choose to end the psychosocial interview by asking the adolescent who they can trust and confide in if they have problems. The HEEADSSS psychosocial interview for adolescents Home: who, where, recent changes moves or new people , relationships, stress or violence , smartphone or computer use in home vs. Exam ination: General considerations for physical examination of an adolescent patient: Use of a chaperone is recommended.

Ensure privacy. For pubertal assessment Tanner staging consider asking the adolescent to make a self assessment. Management General considerations: Depends on the issues identified during psychosocial interview. Adolescent health concerns can generally be viewed in terms of risk and protective factors. If there are significant health risk behaviours, devise an immediate management plan which may include formal mental health assessment and admission e.

Consider opportunistic vaccination. Medicare cards: Anyone over the age of 15 years should be encouraged to obtain their own Medicare card. Transition to adult services Transition to adult services should be considered from mid-adolescence and include formal support and education.

Most health services will aim to transition an adolescent to adult services by their 18 th birthday or once their final year of high school is completed. For complex cases, a period of overlap between paediatric and adult services may be required to permit adequate communication between specialists and safe transition.

Consider consultation with local paediatric team when: For all adolescents deemed to be at significant risk. Consider discharge when: If indicated, an assessment by mental health staff including a risk assessment has been completed.

Engaging with and assessing the adolescent patient

Many young people with chronic illnesses have an increased risk of mental health problems due to stigma, sub-optimal self-care and disengagement from health services. Founded in , Trapeze was created to support young people from ages 14 — 25 to manage their conditions better, to improve outcomes and reduce emergency visits and hospital admissions. Challenges with traditional collection methods of Patient Reported Data :. Prior to connecting with Tickit Health, the Trapeze clinic tried various methods to administer the HEADSS assessment and repeatedly faced a common challenge: administering the surveys increased the burden on providers who were already short on time. A secondary problem was the inherent challenges with traditional paper-based data collection such as user fatigue, fragmented experiences, barriers with cultural and literacy levels, and young people simply find surveys a chore to complete.
