The web-based activity - "Transitioning Youth from Pediatric to Adult-Centered Care - will evaluate adequacy of participant documentation of patients' transition from pediatric to adult centered care within the 6 Core Element framework developed by Got Transition: Center for Health Care Transition Improvement. Eligible participants include clinicians who actively evaluate pediatric patients with chronic diseases on a frequent enough basis to report data on 30 patient visits over a year period. This activity will provide MOC Part IV credits to participants who successfully meet completion criteria.

New National Young Adult Transition Advisory Group Formed
Got Transition has created a new National Young Adult Transition Advisory Group to advise the organization on young adult perspectives on health care transition. The advisory group consists of young adults with and without disabilities between the ages of 18-25 that come from diverse geographic locations and ethnic backgrounds. They all represent various state and national health-related organizations around the country. The Young Adult Transition Advisory Group will ensure that young adult consumer perspectives are included in Got Transition's plans moving forward. They will help review tools designed to educate and inform young adults on the importance of health care transition, guide Got Transition's social media platforms to relay important health care transition-related messages and resources to youth and young adults, and bolster Got Transition's partnerships with their organizational affiliates.
