Lesson 3 of 9
In Progress


Dr. Rob November 30, 2023

Here are some goals for this section:

Develop a transition and care policy/guide with input from youth and parents/caregivers that describes the practice’s approach to transition, an adult approach to care in terms of privacy and consent, and age of transfer to an adult clinician .

Educate all staff about the practice’s approach to transition and distinct roles of the youth, parent/caregiver, and pediatric and adult health care team in the transition process, taking into account cultural preferences .

Display transition and care policy/guide somewhere accessible in practice space, discuss and share with youth and parent/caregiver, beginning at age 12 to 14, and regularly review as part of ongoing care .

An example policy is shown below. A customizable version can be downloaded from the Materials tab on the course home page.
