At this month’s clinical grand rounds, staff nurses will learn how pediatric ambulatory care nurses and their social work colleague
define patient transition from pediatric to adult specialty care. After a broad introduction to transition as a “process”
beginning early in a child’s life, the presentation will include a variety of specialty nursing care perspectives. These perspectives will focus on
transition barriers and successes through case study or program review. The discussion will include nursing innovations currently in practice
as well as those proposed for the future. The intent of pediatric patient transition to adult care is to create a process by which patients
are better prepared for managing their own health care needs when they become adults.
