Health, Schools and Communities
This panel will discuss the intersection between health and the school and community sectors. The panel brings together clinicians and educators to discuss how to work effectively with young people using healthy youth development principles. This is a chance for youth health clinicians to come together to discuss some of the challenges and opportunities when working in education and community settings, and how we can progress the field and enhance the wellbeing of the young people we see.
Christine Cammell will showcase a new school nursing website designed to support clinicians working in school environments.
Katie Fitzpatrick will discuss sexuality and health education in schools, and how schools can use the national curriculum policy (Sexuality education: A guide for principals, boards of trustees and teachers) to support youth.
Sue Bagshaw will discuss the role of health clinicians working in Youth One-Stop Shop services.
Simon Denny will talk about the unique contribution youth health clinicians bring to services for young people and why we desperately need more trained youth health clinicians!
