Transition to Adult Approach to Care

Transition to an adult approach to care is the fifth element in the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition™ (HCT). The clinician should continue to work with the youth/young adult to provide confidential services, assess and strengthen self-care skills, update a plan of care, and update and share a medical summary and emergency care plan with the youth/young adult.
