Transition care refers to the movement from adolescence to adulthood in multiple areas including in the medical arena, community and society. Transition can be a time of vulnerability, especially for those people with chronic medical illnesses, developmental delay or intellectual disability. As the number of patients with chronic medical illnesses reaching adulthood is increasing, we need to increase awareness about transition and to help improve provider knowledge regarding transition.
The goals of this website are to compile and synthesize information regarding transition for providers, to provide information regarding transition conferences at UCMC and elsewhere and to be an up-to-date resource for patient information.
