For today’s youth, the transition between child and adult consists of many biological and emotional changes that are robust and meaningful. For active parents, watching your children grow can be exciting and all the more terrifying. Among many of these changes, these young children may not understand how to meaningfully participate in their health. For nurses, taking steps to provide preventative care is an essential part of reducing this stress and encouraging better well-being throughout their life. However, active engagement in offices lacks the finesse needed to meet these challenges.

How Linda Clark NP Can Help Your Teenager

When you think of a nurse, you would most often find nurses at your schools, community centers, and public health clinics. These public settings can be a great access point for many teenagers because of how these care settings operate. However – for teenagers with ever-changing perspectives and growing bodies, these settings often don’t provide the necessary levels of comfort needed for them to engage with their health more seriously. These settings often lack the integral support needed to communicate with these teenagers about their health, and because so many changes can happen during this stage, it can become confusing and overwhelming for them.

Telehealth can potentially solve that problem. Studies have indicated that telehealth visits for adolescence helped reduce disparity rates in medical centers and has helped teenagers find better responses to their need for health care. Starting telehealth visits can help you support your teen’s growing independence, helping them engage with their health through the various changes at these stages in their life. Through virtual visits, young people can help them connect with medical support and gain the privacy needed to speak about relationships, eating habits, changes in mood, and other various concerns.

Nurses strive for high-quality care that incorporates the unique needs of adolescents, and Linda’s passionate about connecting with and caring for this community. By choosing a telehealth visit, your teenager can gain health guidance during this stage of their life by offering:

  • Flexibility: Virtual visits provide no need for transportation, and your teenager can schedule their appointment at any time that works for them.
  • Independence: Linda Clark NP can speak with your teenager one-on-one, all within the quiet space of their home. Your teenager can potentially benefit from these visits by giving them the independence needed for better healthcare.
