The Adolescent Health Programme (AHP) is an e-learning programme for all healthcare professionals working with young people. It is the third programme in the Healthy Child Programme 0-18 series of e-learning resources, following the Healthy Child Programme and Healthy School Child Programme.
Suitable for GPs, school nurses, community paediatricians and the child health team, AHP aims to ensure that all health professionals have essential youth communication skills and understand young people's rights to consent and confidentiality.
This work was commissioned by the Department of Health and delivered by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) in collaboration with a consortium of professional bodies. The materials have been written by subject specialists and experts in their particular field and have been subjected to extensive peer review.
The programme is not intended to replace core learning or textbooks on these subjects, but rather to focus on their impact on the health and well-being of young people.
