Youth Health Transition Learning Community
The Youth Health Transition Learning Community provides networking opportunities for health professionals who wish to move transition forward in their own organizations. This statewide group comes together virtually to share ideas and best practices around youth health transition. This webinar is for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, community supports, and anyone interested in supporting youth as they transition from adolescent to adult health care. Recordings of our quarterly Learning Community are available on our website.
View the recording of the Learning Community from Thursday, September 17: 3 youth and 2 family members share their healthcare transition stories, Healthcare Transition: Transition Stories about Challenges Faced by Generation Z. Go to the Learning Community page. The Thursday, May 21 webinar also provided important information for practitioners to know about decisions facing their patients who are transitioning to the adult system of healthcare. Nurse Practitioner Kristen Crabtree presents Supported Decision-Making: What Providers Need to Know, also available on the Learning Community page.
Youth Health Transition is piloting a new curriculum! For information about upcoming dates and registration, visit our Events page.
