Transition Medicine

For Providers: Getting Started

The goal of the Transition Medicine Program is to:

  • Organize a system of health care transition through which youth and families are prepared for adult-centered care
  • Develop mechanisms to facilitate the logistics of the transfer to adult-based care
  • Assure that the adult providers and systems are being readied to receive the patients into their systems of care

Toolkits are being developed for a wide variety of conditions, each using the Readiness, Handoff, Transfer structure. These toolkits form the foundation of a new standard of care for all patients graduating from the pediatric health care community.
