Navigating the Six Core Elements

Developing a Transition and Care Policy/Guide

This section explores the first core element: developing a transition and care policy/guide. You’ll learn about the importance of this policy/guide, which outlines the healthcare provider’s approach to healthcare transition, privacy and consent considerations, and the age at which patients should transition to adult clinicians.
Understanding this policy/guide is essential for supporting your loved one’s transition journey. By the end of this module, you’ll know how to navigate this document and why it’s a crucial resource for ensuring a smooth transition.

– Tracking and Monitoring the Transition
Tracking and monitoring the transition progress is the second core element. In this section, you’ll discover how healthcare providers identify patients who are approaching the transition age and track the completion of the Six Core Elements.
You’ll learn why this tracking is essential for your loved one’s transition success and how to actively engage in this process. By the end of this module, you’ll understand your role in ensuring that your loved one receives the necessary support during their transition.

Assessing Your Loved One’s Transition Readiness

Transition readiness assessments are the focus of the third core element. You’ll explore how healthcare providers assess your loved one’s readiness for the transition, identifying their needs for self-care and healthcare service utilization.
You’ll gain insights into how these assessments are conducted and how to actively participate in this process. By the end of this module, you’ll know how to support your loved one in using the information from these assessments to tailor their transition plan to their specific needs.
