Young Person CHAP released

Young Person CHAP Released 

The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care has released the Young Person Comprehensive Health Assessment Program (CHAP). The CHAP is an evidence-based tool for conducting annual health assessments for people with intellectual disability in Australia. This version of the CHAP is for young people aged 12-18 years.

An annual health assessment is a comprehensive and structured assessment of a patient. There is strong evidence that these assessments are an effective way to identify unmet health needs in people with intellectual disability. 

It is available here on the department's website. 

The Adult CHAP can also be accessed here
