More about Erica Montague Krapf, PhD, ABPP

Objectives (Educational Content) :

1) Define healthcare transition and identify key challenges and barriers associated with late initiation of transition discussions. 2) Evaluate existing resources and tools available to support healthcare transition processes, including those provided by Got Transition, and assess their applicability and effectiveness in facilitating early transition discussions and planning. 3) Recognize the role of interdisciplinary collaboration in supporting successful healthcare transitions for children with medical complexity.

Target Audience:

General pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, psychologists, and nurses.

Identified Gap:
