TIPS FOR USE:

1. Wherever possible have the poster displayed in a visible place in clinic. This can help set the scene as a youth friendly space. 

2. Fill in this form in the clinic alongside the patient for future visits, and revisit it at subsequent appointments.

3. This is made to be used over time. Particularly useful are the pages on adherence, with space to explore the the possible barriers to taking medication.
