Abstract [en]

Background: It is especially important for youth that the care is person-centered, responding to the need of the individual which usually will be broader and more complex than the specific health problem they consult in the first place. That in terms of youth health care everything is connected and health care services can be an opportunity to discuss sexual & reproductive SRS issues and mental health issues. The literature show that with young people the reason for consultation can only be an excuse to come to a health care professional. To examine this issue and in an attempt to increase our understanding about youths’s experiences of visiting youth clinics in Sweden overall, the present study compared reasons for the consultation at the youth clinic to the topics attended at the consultation, and by doing so also measuring the level of person-centered care.

Methods: Data from a cross-sectional survey sent out in September 2016 collected from twenty-two youth clinics in the four northern most counties in Sweden, was used in the present study. In total 1223 youth responded to the survey. Chi2 was used to determine significant differences.

Results: Preliminary results shows that of the youth participating in the survey 63.9% got a balanced response to what they asked for, 27.7% were offered more than their initial asked for and 8.4% were offered less than what they asked for. Being offered more than you asked for was not depending on gender, sexual orientation or trans identification. However, on county-level there were differences, where Västernorrland offered more to 35.5%, Jämtland 28.2%, Norrbotten 22.1% and Västerbotten 21.5% of the youth.

Conclusions: The results could be interpreted as a sign that youth clinics offers person-centered care (responding to the needs beyond the specific reason for consultations). In between county difference may be related to differences in organizational systems between counties.

Key messages:

  • Youth clinics in northern Sweden offers person-centred care to young people, by responding to the needs beyond the specific reason for consultation.
  • The level of person centred care offered is dependent on county but not on gender or sexual orientation.
