Fast Fast #346 has been released: The Transition from Pediatric to Adult Medicine. Thank you to Jenna E Frawley, Randy S Hebert MD, MPH for the new addition to our Fast Fact library.
Advances in medical care have allowed many pediatric patients with terminal illnesses to survive well beyond their second decade. Consequently, many pediatric patients with fatal illnesses now eventually must make a transition to adult medicine. This transition can be fraught with psychological and system based challenges which are addressed in this Fast Fact. Please stay tuned, for in the near future, we hope to offer a dedicated series of pediatric-related, palliative-care themed Fast Facts.
