'READYorNot' Moving Ahead with Transition of Care from Adolescence to Adulthood
Alicia Via-Dufresne Ley
Youth with brain-based developmental disabilities require seamless transition from the pediatric to adult health care systems. This transition can be disruptive for youth and their families and have a negative impact on a patient’s health. In the majority of pediatric centres, there are no dedicated resources for transition of care. With the ‘READYorNot’ (READiness in Youth fOR traNsition Out of pediaTric Care) project, we are developing and evaluating e-health aids to help patients and families take charge of this transition.
