CC2018: Childhood Surgical Conditions: Transitions to Long-Term Care and Adult Providers (PEDS)

This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Pediatric Surgery.

Session Description

Numerous congenital conditions and other conditions that manifest during childhood require a transition of care to adult providers for long-term issues. This session will explore the transition of care from pediatric to adult surgical providers. Specific conditions to be discussed include inflammatory bowel disease and Hirschsprung disease. We will also briefly mention a range of surgically corrected congenital anomalies as further examples. Age for transition of care and methods of transitioning care will be explored, particularly with a growing trend of children’s hospitals beginning to care for older adolescent and young adult patients. This session is aimed at the pediatric and adult surgeons, with particular interest for gastrointestinal surgeons.
