Abstract

One proposed strategy to improve adolescent health and health care is to create working partnerships among adolescent health care professionals (HCPs) and families. In this pilot qualitative study we interviewed 17 mothers to explore their perceptions of the role of parents, HCPs, and parent-HCP partnerships in addressing adolescent health issues.
