QNI Transition of Care ProgrammeBe the first to like this
Audience: young people, parents, healthcare professionals
This programme aims to improve care for young people who are in the ‘transition’ process from children’s to adults’ community healthcare.
Young people who have been diagnosed with a long term health condition during childhood are supported by dedicated children’s services, working with their parent(s) or guardian(s). Once people reach young adulthood, they need to transition to adult health services. This process can be stressful and confusing for young people and their families, if for example there are gaps in communication or lack of joined up working.
The QNI (Queen’s Nursing Institute) Transition of Care website features downloadable resources such as videos, articles, conference summary notes and lots more.
