Improving Care

Why Improving Care Matters

Adolescents have health care needs that are different than those of other age groups. Yet, many health care providers do not feel adequately equipped to meet those needs. By improving the quality of care provided to adolescents, we can close the many gaps they experience in care and improve their overall health and well-being.

These health centers have worked with AHI and participated in a year-long process to improve adolescent-centered care. Improvement efforts have included enhancing the physical space of the clinic to be more youth-friendly, instating best practices in adolescent health care, training staff and providers on confidentiality and minor consent laws, and more.
