Abstract

As most young people use the internet daily, technology is increasingly recognised as a key way that health services can promote the health of young people. Health practitioners are developing new skills in working with young people and health systems are adapting to support changing practice.

NSW Kids and Families provides leadership to the NSW Health system and partners with stakeholders to champion outstanding health, wellbeing and healthcare for all children young people and families and reduce the health impact of family and community violence, child abuse and neglect.

Healthy Safe and Well: AStrategic Health Plan for Children, Young People and Families 2014-2024 recognises technology as a key enabler for keeping young people healthy and reducing risk taking to minimise harm. The NSW Youth Health Policy 2011- 2016 also has a focus on using creative approaches, including multimedia and technology to engage young people and their parents, carers and families.

This report tables the findings of consultations with young people and health professionals and makes recommendations to progress the take up of technology by health professionals who work with young people.
