Health transition efforts have primarily focused on pediatric providers and development of self-care management skills of youth with special health care needs and their families. Yet prepared adult providers are essential to completion of youth transfers to adult health care or an adult approach to care. This poster describes strategies developed within a university health system to engage with adult providers and provide relevant training resources.
