TRANSITION FROM PEDIATRIC TO ADULT CARE

Adolescence can be a challenging time for patients as they grow and have more independence and self-awareness. As you and your child go through this period, the transplant team will work to ensure that the family benefits from a smooth process for eventually transitioning (moving) your child and their care to an adult transplant team.
