Resources

The QCYCN develops and endorses a range of resources for clinicians. These resources aim to translate research and clinical consensus into practice at a statewide level.

Position Statements

The Queensland Child and Youth Clinical Network’s Adolescent and Young Adult subnetwork have published the AYA Quality Care Position Statement. The purpose of this position statement is to provide clarity about gold standard, evidence-based Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) care for young people aged 12–25 years. It is relevant for all services caring for these young people and their families across sectors and across Queensland. This document pertains to all professionals working across sectors with AYAs requiring health and mental health care.

AYA Innovation Hub

The Queensland Child and Youth Clinical Network’s Adolescent and Young Adult Subnetwork has launched the AYA Innovation Hub. This is an online space connecting professionals working in AYA health and mental health across the state to foster collaboration, share resources and information and foster innovation. The AYA Innovation Hub provides links to education and training opportunities and is accessible the Queensland Health Staff and is open to external professionals and consumers.
