166. Attitudes Around Sexting Among Youth: A National Text Message Survey
Purpose: Sexting has been linked to symptoms of depression, impulsivity, substance use, and risky sexual behavior. Yet, little is known about the specific context in which sexting behavior affects psychosocial functioning. The current study aims to describe youth ’s perceived prevalence and attitudes about sexting, and identify contexts in which sexting elicits discomfort and negative affect.

167. Effects of Participation In An Inpatient Reproductive Health Consult Service On Pediatric Residents' Competence In Providing Reproductive Care For Adolescents And Young Adults
Unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections are significant issues among adolescents and young adults. Stanford Adolescent Medicine launched a novel inpatient reproductive health consult service to improve reproductive healthcare for teen and young adult patients admitted to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Previously, pediatric residents had inconsistent exposure to reproductive health counseling. Rotation evaluations indicated a need and desire for residents to improve these skills.
