75% of teen deaths are directly related to risky behaviors, but delivering high quality risk screening can feel overwhelming. Many health professionals have questions like: Where do I start? How do I know which risk screening tool will be most beneficial? Then, once a tool is identified, how do I put it into practice and how can technology help address identified risks?
Technology enables professionals to eliminate the most common real-world barriers to risk screening and gain access to population risk data, trends, and youth outcomes. And it has been proven that youth are more honest with a technology interface when disclosing risks than with traditional oral or paper survey methods.
October is Health Literacy Month and here at Possibilities for Change we are dedicated to delivering practical, evidence-based tools to empower youth to take control of their health. RAAPS is the first technology-based risk identification and coaching system that was created specifically for professionals working with youth. Through our partnership with Tickit Health, we have strengthened RAAPS' interactive, cutting-edge approach by dynamically embedding the core principals of digital empathy, such as concern and caring for others, expressed through computer-mediated communications.
In this webinar we will cover how professionals can leverage technology to effectively identify youth risks, improve youth understanding and comprehension of their health decisions, and save lives.
