Pediatric to Adult Care Transitions: Between and Across Settings
This activity addresses the complex challenges, barriers and optimal successes in transitioning childhood palliative care patients and families over to adult palliative care and adult services providers. As pediatric palliative patients progress toward adulthood, they undergo significant transitions throughout their lives and within their medical care. Adult providers may lack a familiarity with common chronic pediatric conditions, the complex symptoms inherent to these conditions, or the frequent psychosocial issues that surround such conditions. In addition, advance care planning is often a missed opportunity for this population and requires an adaptation of our usual frameworks to better apply to the transitional population. The desired outcome for this activity is to apply, analyze and evaluate a transition model in pediatric to adult transitions for future practice application to improve outcomes in pediatric to adult serious illness care.
