New Practices in AMCHP's Innovation Station
AMCHP is pleased to announce that new practices have been added to the Innovation Station Database following a recent review held by the Best Practices Committee:
- Adolescent-Centered Environmental Assessment Process: The goal of the ACE-AP is to improve services for adolescent patients at clinical practices across the country. The ACE-AP is a facilitated, comprehensive self-assessment tool and improvement process that includes customized resources, recommendations, technical assistance, and implementation plans using Plan, Do, Study, Act improvement cycles.
- Youth Advisory Council: The council pursues improved health outcomes for children and youth with special health care needs (ages 14-24). It brings together youth and young adults who advise and collaborate with the Rhode Island Department of Health's Health Equity Institute on activities and resources that affect the health, wellness, and transition of youth in that state.
- Adolescent Champion Model: The Adolescent Champion Model strives to improve services for adolescent patients at clinical practices across the country. The model brings together youth-serving clinical providers in a community of practice to execute practice improvement through Plan, Do, Study, Act cycles over an 18-month intervention.
