The Youth Providers 2.0 initiative — a collaboration between SAHM and Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health — is pleased to announce the release of a compilation of Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinical Care Resources intended to provide guidance and resources for adolescent and young adult health care providers and youth serving professionals. It includes clinical care guidelines and resources such as training tools, clinical resources, publications, videos, and webinars.

Topics covered in the guide include routine sexual and reproductive health care for young women and young men; sexual health-related immunizations; pregnancy, including prevention, abortion, and health pregnancy; STIs, including HIV; sexual violence; and the sexual and reproductive health needs of specific populations, including LGBT youth, youth with disabilities, incarcerated youth, and adolescent with cancer. All clinical care resources included are free of cost; specific to adolescents or regarding a population which includes adolescents; open access or accessible after the creation of a free login; and nationally applicable.

The clinical care resources guide was created by the YP2.0 initiative, which aims to improve the use of evidence-based practices among health care providers caring for adolescents and young adults. To accomplish this goal, SAHM is engaged in activities that use new media technologies to improve the dissemination of patient-centered outcomes research. For questions or feedback regarding the clinical care resource guide or the YP2.0 project, please contact John Santelli or Chelsea Kolff.
