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

Effective care coordination is critical to a successful transition of care for youth and young adults with spina bifida. These illustrative guides 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 healthcare, while highlighting the unique needs of patients with spina bifida.

Healthcare professionals are encouraged to utilize these illustrative guides in clinical settings.
