What we do
Transition to adult care is part of the care that all health care providers at BCCH provide. Your care providers will work with you to prepare you for the adult health care system. Here's what you can expect:
ON TRAC is an initiative with the goal of supporting youth with chronic health conditions and/or disabilities as they transition from pediatric to adult health care services.
Main areas of work include:
We work with health care professionals in the pediatric and adult systems to help ensure a smooth transfer from pediatric to adult health care services, including developing clinical guidelines and preparation and transfer documentation tools.
We work with youth and families to ensure that their voices are heard in developing toolkits and resources to support their transition.
We can support workshops and presentations for youth, families, and health care providers to increase awareness, skills, and competencies about transition issues, and share resources and research.
We contribute to practice- and evidence-based knowledge by publishing our research and working with other programs that are evaluating transition efforts.
