ABAP is proud to be a supporting Partner to The Partnership for Male Youth (PMY) which offers this clinical toolkit is for health care providers who serve adolescent and young adult (AYA) males between the ages of 10 and 26. It is designed to address AYA males’ unique health care needs. The toolkit contains four major clinical tools:
A downloadable checklist for health care providers that covers 9 major domains (see navigation bar to the right) where the health care needs of AYA males are most pronounced and unique.
A compilation of suggested patient interview questions for each domain.
Supporting materials for each domain consisting of background information, practice tools and references.
A video library of CME and patient education presentations on subjects covered by the toolkit.
The clinical toolkit was developed under the guidance of a multi-disciplinary team of nationally known clinicians and researchers from the fields of pediatrics, family medicine, adolescent medicine, sexual and reproductive health, psychiatry, psychology, social work, substance use, trauma, violence and urology. The toolkit will be continually updated with suggestions from users and from focus groups of clinicians who will review the instrument. Comments may be submitted through the comment button at the top of each page.
The right hand navigation bar on each page guides the reader through the supporting material for each health domain. This material can also be accessed through links embedded in the checklist, which may be accessed through the tab above or the link below.
Before navigating the material for the first time it is advisable to visit the toolkit tutorial. You can also navigate to this page using the main menu at the top of each page.
