This session was originally presented at the 6th Annual International Neonatal and Childhood Pulmonary Vascular Disease Conference at the University of California, San Francisco.
Once a pulmonary hypertension pediatric patient becomes older, they must transition into adult care. It’s during this time that the patient’s pediatric healthcare and caregiver team must become involved to provide an efficient transfer.
Janette T. Reyes, MN, NP-Peds, shares her insight and offers methods on the transition process through her personal experience here: Successful Transition of the Late Adolescent PH Patient: Canadian Transition Program.
