    Workshop titel: How can Youth Health Care/ School Nursing influence the health of children and teenagers and help them to grow up healthy and happy?  Content and objective of the workshop : Youth Health Care/ School Nursing can be an effective intervention for health promotion and disease prevention and hence support optimal development of all children in their environment. The contribution of youth health/ school nurses can increase the health and education chances of children and adolescents and may reduce inequalities in health.

The concepts of (pre-)school nursing in the three countries will be presented, including the professional training, tasks/ aims of the nurses and their daily practice. Afterwards different topics will be discussed with the audience. We intend to enhance the quality and profile of Youth Health/ School Nursing and contribute to the further development of the profession. Discussion Topics: outcomes of Youth Health/ School Nursing, universal versus individual Youth Health care, and challenges für the Youth Health Care/ School Nursing facing transition of development stages
