This program is designed for all National Conference attendees and will address the expanding role and need for pediatric practices to support children with medical complexity and their families through the process of transition to adult health care systems. The program will provide attendees with tools and resources to: 1) recognize increased need within their practices to help initiate transition at appropriate stages (at what ages and which visits); 2) support children and families to overcome barriers to successful transition; 3) identify and collect measures of successful transition for the patient, including family support; and 4) understand the advantages/disadvantages of different models of transition care for adolescents and young adults with medical complexity. The session will end with group and panel discussions on recommendations that can be applied to pediatric practices to improve effective transition to adult health care.
