This one-day online course is designed to improve the knowledge of young people's health needs based on understanding the key physiological and developmental changes of adolescence.

The course will include an interactive lecture on the 'HEADSS Assessment' and a workshop on 'Complex Adolescent Safeguarding'. Participants will explore why young people's health needs are different from the rest of the paediatric population and how services can adapt to meet these needs.

Speakers are all practising clinicians, many of whom are actively engaged in research to improve young people's health.

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify how young people's health needs differ from the rest of the paediatric population and how services can adapt accordingly
  • Know how to put the HEADSS assessment tool into practice
  • Build on the current understanding of growth and puberty during adolescence
  • Improve knowledge of adolescent gynaecology
  • Understand the safeguarding challenges in adolescent medicine
