Adolescent Drug Testing Policies in Schools
American Academy of Pediatrics, 2015
The AAP opposes widespread implementation of drug testing programs because of the lack of solid evidence for their effectiveness. A technical report also reviews the relevant literature that explores the benefits, risks, and costs of these programs.

The goal of the AHRQ-funded project, Youth Providers 2.0 (YP2.0), is to improve the use of evidence-based practices among health care providers caring for adolescents and young adults. To accomplish this goal, SAHM will engage in a number of activities using new media to improve the dissemination of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) to health professionals.
