Transition From Pediatric to Adult Care

Anna Bamford, Donald Payne

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter


Children and adolescents with chronic respiratory disease become adults with chronic respiratory disease. As a result of ongoing improvements in health care, this is now increasingly the norm rather than the exception. Therefore professionals who look after children and adolescents with chronic illness have a responsibility to consider how their patients' health care needs will continue to be met as they become adults. This chapter discusses the background to transition from pediatric to adult health care and provides a practical approach to assist health professionals, administrators, patients, and families to plan and negotiate the process.
