Dr Michelle Williams on understanding the health challenges facing adolescents, and tips for communicating with the troubled teen in the healthcare setting.
Michelle is a Staff Specialist Paediatrician at the Royal Hobart Hospital, and seems to have been around a long time. Like most regional paediatricians she does a bit of everything. She started the Paediatric and Adolescent Eating Disorder Service and sees a lot of adolescents. That has led to a lot of adolescent health and mental health joint clinics with the CAMHS teams. They have taught her lots... including some things that she wishes she could unlearn.
From the 2018 APLS Paediatric Acute Care Conference in Hobart.
