Transition of care from child to adult services - Type 1 diabetes

Structured transition of care from paediatric to adult services helps adolescents and young adults to feel empowered, engaged and enabled to manage their chronic condition.

The Transition model of care describes activities in four phases (planning, preparation, transfer, and evaluation), starting from around age 12. The model provides a structure to support the young person to develop skills and knowledge needed to become independent in managing their condition and ready to access adult healthcare services.
