This project involves using quality improvement (QI) principles and techniques to allow pediatricians in rural areas to increase their capacity to deliver effective transition skills. Utilizing a network of telehealth sites around the states, transition specialists collaborate with rural pediatricians to ?model? effective transition skills, including templates for reports targeted at adult providers who will be seeing the youth in the future.
