  • Birth control
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Pregnancy
  • Puberty
  • Relationships

Using Let’s Chat in your clinic

Let’s Chat complements the one-on-one time recommended for adolescents by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). There are three steps to implementing the online tool in your practice.

There are three steps to implementing the online tool in your practice.
1. Create and ask patients to scan a QR code to access https://www.lets-chat-app.org/ during registration or rooming.
2. Invite patients to browse the categories and questions and save up to three favorites.
3. During one-on-one time, clinicians follow-up by asking adolescent patients if they have any questions and counseling on selected topics.
*Note: The tool does not ask for or store any identifiable information.

How Let’s Chat improves the sexual health visit

When testing an early prototype in clinic, many young people did not even know they could ask their clinician questions. Instead, they felt limited to only answering questions asked by their clinician.

At this important developmental moment, Let’s Chat helps young people build rapport and trust with providers. A recent study indicated adolescents liked that Let’s Chat encouraged them to ask a variety of questions about diverse topics (80%) and that it allowed them to understand the range of questions they could ask their clinician (92.5%).
