  • Anyone practicing in primary or subspecialty care recognizes that more adolescents and young adults with chronic conditions of childhood origin are surviving and transitioning into adulthood. The question we then face is: how can I optimize this transition and ensure the highest levels of care?

    Consider the following clinical questions:

    • What should I screen for in a cancer survivor?
    • How do I reduce cardiovascular risk in my young adult patients?
    • How do I best approach a patient with autism?
    • What are the state-of-the-art approaches to chronic pain?
    • How do I talk about sexuality with my patients?

    Equally important are questions raised by patients about:

    • Independent living
    • Self-management
    • Self-advocacy
    • Decision-making
    • Information sharing
    • Effective communications

    And many of us have process questions, including:

    • When (and how) should I think about integrating young adults into my practice?
    • What are the best ways to prepare patients for adult care?
    • How can we more effectively utilize team-based care to optimize the transition?

    These frequently asked questions have given rise to an overwhelming demand for evidence-based practices that have been shown to optimize both the transition of care and patient outcomes.  

    That is precisely what is offered at Young Adults with Chronic Conditions: Optimizing Treatment and Transition from Pediatric to Adult Care. Taught by many of the country’s most experienced experts, this immersive program provides state-of-the-art strategies, best practices and take-home tools to help you effectively and efficiently transition patients and elevate their quality of life.

    If you provide care for or are preparing to accept pediatric patients who are transferring to adult care, this course will prove invaluable. It will inform, update, and inspire you, and you will return to your practice empowered to be a more effective clinician in the care of these patients.
