Webinar: Improving adolescent-centered care: Training your (health care) team when you don't have time or resources for training
In this webinar, the University of Michigan – Adolescent Health Initiative will highlight a series of free, pre-packaged mini-trainings they've created called "Sparks." They are designed for providers or staff to deliver in 15-30 minutes at staff meetings or professional development opportunities. Sparks can be facilitated by providers or staff in any role, and they are specifically designed to "spark" discussion and reflection among a multidisciplinary audience. Learn about how to use these trainings to improve youth-centered care. This webinar is part of the AYAH-NRC's Youth Centered Care – Learning Community webinar series.
