I’m going to let you all in on a little secret: if you want to know what’s hot in the world of adolescent medicine, it’s transition. Seriously. Everyone is talking about it. There are whole conferences devoted to it. Journal articles written about it. Task forces formed to improve it.
But somehow, despite all of the hype in the world of medical professionals, the conversation – not to mention the concept – has not always reached patients and families. You may even be wondering what the term “transition” means in this case… and you would not be the only one.
