Transitioning to Adult Care: Time is Ticcing Away
Live Webinar on July 13, 2021 at 3:00 PM ET
This webcast is hosted via the GoToWebinar platform
In this webinar, we will discuss the process of transitioning from Pediatric to Adult care for patients with Tourette Syndrome, Chronic Tic Disorders, and co-occurring conditions. There are a number of dramatic contrasts between Pediatric and Adult medicine that often complicate transition process. For example, the dynamics of an adult medical visit are completely different than in a Pediatric medical visit. Also, coordination of care between medical providers is often more complicated and is more patient driven. Participants of this webinar will be presented with strategies to manage these and other challenges inherent to the transition process.
Physicians and Physician Specialists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Medical Students, Residents, Fellows and other allied healthcare professionals engaged in the care of patients with Tourette syndrome.
After participating in this webcast, participants should be better able to:
- Identify the hurdles that can impede successful transition to adult care and how to overcome them.
- Identify the significant contrasts between a Pediatric and Adult medical visit and use strategies to manage these contrasting models of care
- Discuss how to advocate for themselves to facilitate effective care coordination between multiple medical providers.
