Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood is tough for any young person, but for a chronically ill child, who’s lived life in the medical care system, this becomes an even more critical. Finding care, managing health insurance, setting reminders to take mandatory medication, all the while wanting to be normal are all part of the process.
The Pediatric to Adult Care Transition (PACT) Support system, in collaboration with the medical team and families, empowers these kids by building key skills necessary to successfully make the transition to adult-based medical care. While we can’t wave a magic wand and make it all go away, we can help decrease the frustration and increase adherence with the lifelong, lifesaving complex medical routines.
