Transition from Adolescent to Adult Care

Transition from Adolescent to Adult Care

“What is transition?” asked my colleague when I mentioned the topic of this article. As I began to explain the science and philosophy of the transition from pediatric to adult care my coworker’s expression became more thoughtful, although it was obvious that he didn’t know much about the topic. Later it became clear that there is a large amount of variability in different individuals’ knowledge of transition and in the effects of a rocky transition on those being transferred.
