Healthcare Transitions: Lessons from the Field


Presented on June 24, 2019

Continuing education credits available until:
June 24, 2020


Preparing for adulthood is tough enough for the next generation of young adolescents facing this fast-paced world. As their bodies change over time, so do their medical needs and other social pressures that come with maturity. In the pediatric transplant population, failure to address these longitudinal issues could impact patient outcomes and quality of life.

Join us to hear from Dr. Maria Díaz-González de Ferris, Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the UNC Healthcare Transition Program, on how they have addressed these issues by implementing a patient-centered program called STARx (Self-management and Transition to Adulthood with Rx=treatment). The STARx Program addresses the specific clinical and social needs of the pediatric transplant patient population as youth prepare to self-manage their health and transfer to adult-focused health services.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the unique needs of the pediatric population as they transition into adult-focused health services.
  • Identify the various tools used to measure, track, and intervene in the longitudinal care of the pediatric-to-adult transplant patient population.
  • Summarize the journey in establishing a pediatric-to-adult healthcare transition program.
