Partners in Program Planning for Adolescent Health: A Nursing Initiative
The American Nurses Foundation's project, The Partners in Program Planning for Adolescent Health (PIPPAH): A Nursing Initiative is now in its Cycle II, receiving notice of continued funding in August 2002. During Cycle II, the goal is to promote awareness and support for adolescent health and positive youth development. A specific goal is to strengthen commitments from nursing organizations to focus on adolescent health. Sixteen nursing organizations are divided into two groups, a planning group and an implementation group. The Planning Task Force met March 12-13 in Washington, DC, and the Implementation Task Force will convene July 30-31. The PIPPAH: A Nursing Initiative Project at ANF is funded by a four-year cooperative agreement with Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). ANF PIPPAH project developed an independent study module in Cycle I titled "Working with Adolescents." It has been renewed and is currently available on NursingWorld: http://nursingworld.org/ce/.
