Webinar - Pediatric to adult transition: starting a program in your clinic
Join us for a brief and practical discussion about starting a transition program at your clinic. We will review the basic components of the Pediatric to Adult Transition Starter Toolkit, review national resources and guidance, and discuss practical approaches to beginning this clinic-level improvement work in your setting. Implementing this 7-step approach will help streamline and coordinate this process for your patients and clinic staff, help create a youth-friendly and supportive environment in your clinic, and provide a strategy for increasing adolescent well-care visits for older youth.
- Audience: All clinic-level staff (mostly focused on pediatric clinics, but relevant for all of primary care). This work needs to be an interprofessional effort from all team members.
- Presented by Reem Hasan, OHSU
Increasing well-visits for young adults: ages 18-21
CCOs have made improvements on overall adolescent well-care rates. However, preventive visits among young adults (ages 18-21) remain drastically lower than rates among younger adolescents. Establishing relationships with community colleges is one promising way to engage young adults in preventive care. A recent webinar focused on this strategy as a part of an environmental scan conducted by Cairn Guidance. See the Health Hack curriculum section below for materials referenced in the webinar.
Health Hack curriculum
Health Hack, presented by FamilyCare Health, is a series of programs and resources for youth and young adults (ages 15-25). The resources and activities include tips (called hacks) that break down health and wellness, insurance and self-advocacy in a way that is easy to understand. Schools, health partners and other youth-serving organizations may use the curriculum as is or tailor it as needed. Organizations may co-brand materials, but please keep the Health Hack logo.
Recorded webinar series
In 2016, the Transformation Center hosted a webinar series for CCOs and clinics working to improve adolescent well-care visit rates. The Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership presented 10 webinars, which are now available as recordings. For details, see this
