Services "amis des jeunes" : promouvoir des soins adaptés aux adolescents

Ambresin, Anne-Emmanuelle
Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2014, vol. 10, no. 434, p. 1278-1281
Abstract Many young people have difficulties requesting medical or psychosocial support, although some badly need it. This difficulty is related to the fact that, as part of their search for autonomy, young people prefer to solve their problems by themselves. To improve the quality of care, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and allied organizations have developed the concept of "Youth friendly health services". This concept includes policies and strategies to improve the accessibility and flexibility, staff's competence and communication skills, etc. Such an approach should not be limited to specialized centers for adolescent health. It should be adopted by all health care institutions dealing with young people.
