Transitioning from Pediatric to Adult Healthcare for People with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD)
Wed., Apr 28, 2021
10:00-11:30 AM MT


We will discuss the meaning and process of transition to adult healthcare, as well as health disparities, and hope for the future.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define transition, and define transfer; understand the differences of each process.
  2. Discuss healthcare disparities patients with I/DD experience as they age.
  3. Review research about healthcare for adults with IDD.
  4. Outline the process of an ideal healthcare transition. (Wait a minute, there is no ideal! It should all be tailored to each patient and family’s unique situation and timeline.)
  5. Understand the perspective of a patient/family who has undergone transition from pediatric to adult healthcare. 

The intended audience for this webinar includes: families, caregivers, care coordinators, service coordinators and community care providers
