Let's Talk Transition Care!
Med-Peds as a specialty was established to provide physicians with a career path by which they could care for adults as full-fledged internists and for children as full-fledged pediatricians. This specialized training uniquely equips Med-Peds providers to treat patients across a lifespan, bridging the gap between childhood and adulthood. Over time, recognition of the importance of this transition period has grown, and the field of transition care has become an integral part of healthcare systems across the country. Given that 90% of children with chronic conditions survive into adulthood, it is crucial that we as a medical community learn how to address their special healthcare needs, provide age-appropriate medical care, and decrease long-term healthcare risks. We hope that this conference provides you with the information and tools needed to help you better serve your patients as they transition from childhood into adulthood under your care.
