Does your young adult know what to do in a health emergency? If they have a chronic condition, do they know how to make the shift to an adult doctor? Does your young adult know how to find a new doctor or fill a prescription? Can your young adult manage their mental health? What can we do as caregivers to help make this transition to adult healthcare easier? What tools are available to parents, caregivers, and to our young adults? Got Transition is one resource available to families.
Got Transition is the federally funded national resource center on health care transition (HCT). Its aim is to improve the transition from pediatric to adult health care through the use of evidence-driven strategies for health care professionals, youth, young adults, and their families.
These online resources can assist young adults and their families in transitioning from pediatric to adult healthcare.
