Abstract

The transition from pediatric to adult care of chronically ill adolescents Even though the transition from pediatric to adult health care is extremely important for chronically ill adolescents, most of the times it is limited to a simple transfer The objective of this paper is to describe the barriers to a smooth transition from the point of view of the patient and his/her family, the health professionals and the health system, to review the key elements for a smooth transition, and to address the different approaches proposed in the literature.
