Got Transition

Transition is the process of moving from pediatric to adult healthcare. This will mean different things to different patients. Some switch from a pediatric provider to an adult provider, while others take an adult approach to healthcare while staying with the same provider. 

The goal is the same regardless of the approach, to encourage and empower the transitioning patient to take the most active role that they can in their own healthcare. This link provides both customizable tools for parents and professionals to address the needs of the transitioning patient as well as timelines for what should be done for the patient at different ages.
