Supporting Youth to Adult Health Care Transition

Condition Specific

The ACP Pediatric to Adult Care Transitions Toolkit contains disease-specific tools that are critical for the young adult in transition to be aware of and understand in order to successfully achieve optimal self-care as an emerging adult.

American College of Physician’s (ACP) Council of Subspecialty Societies (CSS) initiated a project to develop specialized toolkits to facilitate more effective transition and transfer of young adults into the adult health care setting.

Finding gaps often occur in the transition process for emerging adults as they transition from pediatric to adult health care, especially for youth with special health needs, a project started to develop specialized toolkits to help with transition and transfer of young adults into the adult health care setting. This is a collaborative effort between ACP’s Council of Subspecialty Societies (CSS) and Got Transition/Center for Health Care Transition Improvement, a cooperative agreement between the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health, Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM), and Society of Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM).  This project is also part of the College’s High Value Care Coordination Project —a part of ACP’s broader high value care initiative — which attempts to help physicians to provide the best possible care to their patients while simultaneously reducing unnecessary costs to the healthcare system.

Additional resources available for teens, young adults and families about condition specific transition topics and considerations will be coming soon.
