The Endocrine Society, in conjunction with the Hormone Health Network, American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatric Endocrine Society, and American College of Physicians has developed pediatric-to-adult transitions of care resources specific to growth hormone deficiency. Following a comprehensive literature review, the working group found a number of gaps and developed the following resources to address these needs:
A Provider Assessment of Patient Skill Set. The checklist will be used to start a dialogue between the pediatric provider and their patient to begin preparing for this transition and to ensure that the patient is given the information they need to successfully prepare for managing their diabetes without parental supervision.
A Clinical Summary. This transitions template will used by the pediatric care provider to summarize the patient’s medical record, which is then transferred to the adult care provider.
