Care coordination for youth and young adults with spina bifida in healthcare transition

From the American Academy of Pediatrics

Effective care coordination is critical to a successful transition of care for youth and young adults with spina bifida. These illustrative guides (infographics) serve to reinforce the value added to having a care-coordination team to support youth and young adults with spina bifida as they transition from pediatric to adult-focused health care while highlighting the unique needs of individuals with spina bifida. It also helps pediatricians and other healthcare professionals in supporting youth and young adults through the healthcare-transition process. Healthcare professionals are encouraged to utilize these illustrative guides in clinical settings.
