Adolescent Health Unit
The Adolescent Health Unit acts as a link between the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood, between 14 and 21 years of age. In addition to monitoring the patient’s general state of health, the task is also to work on behavioural and mood problems and the prevention of risk factors and unhealthy behaviour.
During adolescence, numerous physical and psychological changes occur, involving accelerated growth, hormonal fluctuations and important changes in the patient's life, the correct follow-up of which must be monitored by a doctor, coordinated with a team of specialists in a cycle involving gynaecologists, endocrinologists, nutritionists and child and adolescent psychologists, as well as specialists in sports medicine. In this way, a global care of the patient is achieved, centralized in the hands of a doctor of confidence.
