​AAP Transition ECHO​​​​
Support transition from pediatric to adult care​


​​OVERVIEW

The AAP Transition ECHO serves as a forum for health care professionals to learn how to successfully transition youth from pediatrics to the adult care system. This virtual community builds a bi-directional  knowledge network whereby participants learn from experts and each other, gaining access to evidence-based and capacity-building resources. Each clinic includes a brief presentation by a national transition expert, followed by in-depth, practice-based presentations for discussion, problem-solving guidance and recommendations. All attendees are invited to share and actively participate. Through regular attendance, participants will use quality improvement techniques to support planning and transfer of care to ensure that all youth and young adults, including those with epilepsy, successfully transition into adult care.  

All healthcare professionals, including office staff, who have an interest in improving transitional care for youth and young adults (including patients with epilepsy) are welcome to participate. Participants will receive the following benefits from participating in the ECHO clinic:

  • Receive up-to-date information on clinical recommendations from the Clinical Report on Transition and nationally recognized transition model, “Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition”.
  • Acquire evidence-based health care transition tools and resources.
  • Identify quality improvement lessons learned around transition from colleagues caring for youth and young adults with epilepsy.
  • Access guidance and recommendations related to transition from peers and national experts.
