Association of Young People's Health Conference
27 March 2012 - Millennium Stadium, Cardiff - 9.30 to 4.30

The Association for Young People’s Health (AYPH) is pleased to be hosting this one day multi–disciplinary conference for researchers and practitioners from across the UK, with an interest in young people’s health and well-being. It will provide delegates with the opportunity to share their experiences of healthcare research as well as promoting innovative approaches for practice. Topics will include

• Better understanding the health needs and experiences of young people and the assets they need to navigate them.
• Young people’s participation and involvement in healthcare decision-making and service design.
• Meeting the health needs of vulnerable or marginalised groups of young people.
• Supporting young people effectively in the health care transitions they face.

We will be looking at a broad range of issues including mental and emotional wellbeing, sexual health and relationships, alcohol and substance use, diet, nutrition and eating behaviours as well as methodological issues involved in researching young people’s health.
