NEGC TRANSITION WORKGROUP April 10, 2014 Portsmouth, New Hampshire
GOALS FOR THIS MEETING 1.Hear from the group about where the field is going 2.Develop “deliverables” related to Transition to Adult Healthcare 3.Outline directions for the coming year
This is important because: Systems are beginning to be put in place for transition. But, there continue to be huge challenges from both a systems and individual perspective. We have an opportunity to move the field forward.

Introductions Name, job, affiliations? Why interested in Transition to an adult model of Healthcare? From your perspective, where is the field going or in what direction would you like to see it move?
Here’s what I found A call to action: Antonelli et al. Pubmed Articles: Transition to Adult Care 2003=117; 2013=346 Addressing “System” change—ACA, transition navigators, medical homes Addressing the individual is just beginning—transition within a developmental context
Two interesting references Rutishauser C, Sawyer SM, Ambresin AE. Transition of young people with chronic conditions: a cross-sectional study of patient perceptions before and after transfer from pediatric to adult health care. Eur J Pediatr. 2014 Mar 9. Sharma N, O'Hare K, Antonelli RC, Sawicki GS. Transition Care: FutureDirections in Education, Health Policy, and Outcomes Research. Acad Pediatr. 2014 March - April;14(2):120-127.
Our own work: Identity and Transition Who are emerging adults today? Ryan Trecartin (New Yorker Magazine, March 24, 2014) What is the context (medical, social)? Health Readiness Does Identity Achievement relate to successful transitioning? Erikson Psychosocial Stage Inventory
Definitions of Success in Transition Different definitions for different subpopulations Need for individualized definitions
A question: Are adults with metabolic and other genetic disorders aging prematurely? Are they experiencing adult symptoms at a younger age? If so, might this provide a rationale for an adult medical home?
WORK GROUPS Transition Materials with a focus on Mitochondrial Disorders Health Survey for Young Adults Transition Content for GEMSS
NCC Transition-ACMG Meeting Defining successful outcome Measuring something important, not just something measurable! Elements Support System Providers A Plan Knowledge Reducing anxiety
NCC Transition Projects 1. “Anti” literature review (identifying gaps in evidence based research) 2. “Mixed method” research project Quantitative—health survey, self- reported outcomes (www.neuroqol.org)www.neuroqol.org Qualitative interviews: young people and providers – answers to 3 questions on video
NCC Meeting-other insights Pediatricians focus on survival until adulthood; internists focus on long- term health. Forming relationship with adult provider is like entering a marriage— need time and trust. It’s hard to “give away my story” without knowing how it will be used or valued.
