The pediatrician and the adolescent risk behaviour

Saggese G., Bertelloni S.


PDF  


The major health problems in adolescents are represented by some conditions, known as ''new morbidity'', affecting about 20-25 % of young people. Pediatricians should be able to address the adolescents health needs by the development of specific health programs. In organizing such programs, the pediatricians should be able to co-ordinate the activities of other care-givers, such as neurologists, psychiatrist, gynecologists, dermatologists and other people working with young people as well (teachers, social assistants, etcetera). If the health programs will be developed, they could reduce the incidence of the new morbidity in the adolescents, improving their health status and those of adults as well.
