The Youth Health Transition Learning Community provides networking opportunities for health professionals who wish to move transition forward in their own organizations. This statewide group comes together virtually to share ideas and best practices around youth health transition. This webinar is for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, community supports, and anyone interested in supporting youth as they transition from adolescent to adult health care.
The Youth Health Transition Initiative, based at the Waisman Center in Madison, facilitates Learning Community activities.
The next Learning Community will be Thursday, September 26th from noon-1:00pm. Our topic is Supporting Self-Management in Children and Adolescents with Complex Chronic Conditions. Registrants will be able to connect to the Learning Community through Zoom, using your computer or phone. Registration and details are available below. A notice will be sent to the list-serv.
