Teen Sexual Health: A Provider Toolkit

The Teen Sexual Health: A Provider Toolkit was developed to give health care providers concrete tools to better care for their teen patients. We hope that you consider implementing these ideas into your clinic and distribute this information to teens and their parents. Our goal is to make sure teens make smart choices about their health and relationships and whenever possible, do that with their parent’s support.

We've included many resources for you in this toolkit. These resources include printable, easy to understand birth control options charts, practice bulletins published by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatricians that describe up-to-date guidelines for care, as well as booklists to give to your patients and their parents. The toolkit is divided into 5 sections to help you access the resources you need:

  • 1. For Health Care Providers
  • 2. For Parents of Teen Patients
  • 3. For Teen Patients
  • 4. Teen-friendly Tulsa Clinics
  • 5. Contraception Options
  • 6. Age Appropriate Books
