Successful transition planning helps to ensure coordinated care that is culturally sensitive, appropriate for your child’s age and development, and family focused.
Early transition preparation (10-13 years):
- The concept of transition is raised with the family
- Healthcare providers may begin to see the patient alone for part of the visit
- Healthcare providers discuss medical health with patient and caregivers
- Caregivers manage medical appointments, medications refills, and supervise patient’s taking of medications
