The YPHSIG Clinical Education Day (9th Oct) will provide paediatricians, GPs and other clinicians with an update on how to manage common health problems and conditions facing adolescents and young adults. The expert speakers will address these health problems in the context of the life course of the young person and consider how to provide coordinated care across the interface of primary, secondary and specialised services.

The event will provide 6 CPD credits and offer a great opportunity to network with other professionals working with young people in health services.
