Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION
Transition from pediatric to adult care is an important issue, not only for subspecialists, but also for the primary care provider. In addition, it is as important for the normal adolescent as it is for the patient with special health care needs. This conference will address issues for each of these groups for both the adult and pediatric provider of health care.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this activity,participants will be able to:

  • Identify the six initial steps to ensure a successful transition from pediatric to adult care.
  • Describe a model of transition from pediatric to adult care and institute a transition program for patients.
  • Evaluate the psychosocial implications in transition from pediatric to adult care and devise a plan of care accordingly.
  • Assess the barriers patients come across in transitioning from pediatric to the adult provider and be able to implement changes in their clinical practice to eliminate these barriers to improve patient care.
