Youth Prevention Research Working Group

The cross-network/trans-Institute Youth Prevention Working Group (YPRWG) was formed in the winter of 2012.  Its creation was a key recommendation emerging from the NIH “Focused initiatives for Healthier Lifestyles by the Inter Network Advisory Group on Adolescent Prevention” meeting.  The group consists of representatives from the NIH networks, the Adolescent Trials Network (ATN), DAIDS, NIAID, NIMH, NIDA, and NICHD.

The group addresses issues such as:  

   ·         Coordinate sharing of network adolescent research agendas

   ·         Address the challenge of conducting trials across multiple networks

   ·         Consider tangible outcomes such as dropping the mean age of network volunteers

   ·         Validate existing tools

   ·         Compare ongoing and upcoming studies

   ·         Consider adolescent issues early on in design process

   ·         Review relevant informed consent documents

   ·         Collate a set of core competencies
