Pediatric to Adult Care Transition Panel

Pediatric to Adult Care Transition Panel MembersCaregivers, teens, and young adults attended this panel to learn strategies to aid in the transition from Pediatric to Adult Care.

The goal of transition is to optimize health and assist youth in reaching their full potential. Common steps to prepare for transition include establishing a policy, tracking progress, administering transition readiness assessments, planning for adult care, transferring, and integrating into an adult practice. Preparing for the transition to adult care may begin with patients beginning to take an age-appropriate role in their care as early as the tween years.
