Transitioning to Adult Health Care



New Resources for Youth and Families Transitioning to Adult Healthcare

 

Transition of Care Video Series

Through the Transition of Care Video Series, the Child Neurology Foundation (CNF) shares the unique journeys of 2 patients—a teen with epilepsy and a young woman with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and other health conditions—as they approach transitioning from a child neurologist to an adult neurologist. The Transition of Care Video Series also showcases perspectives and experiences of 5 national transitions experts: child and adult physicians, social workers, and nurses—through brief, yet in-depth interviews. The videos underscore the importance of partnership, communication, and a defined process to ensure successful health care transitions.  Watch the videos and access other CNF transition resources.
