Orientation to Adult Practice

Orientation to adult practice is the third element in the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition™ (HCT). The adult practice can begin by identifying clinicians in the practice interested in taking care of new young adults. Young adults are relatively new health care consumers, so it is important to offer an orientation to the adult practice and provide young adult-friendly welcome materials that describe confidentiality, services offered, and the logistics of obtaining care.
