GHD

Patients who are living with growth hormone deficiency face a number of challenges in successfully managing their disease—and transitioning from a pediatric to a new adult doctor can be yet another obstacle. A variety of resources have been developed to help the care team prepare for and successfully manage this transition.

  • Assessment of Patient Skills PDF: A checklist to help the pediatric care team begin a conversation with the patient about what they need to do to successfully manage their growth hormone deficiency without parental supervision.
  • Patient Self-assessment of Worries, Concerns, and BurdensPDF: An assessment of relevant psycho-social, familial, and cognitive factors that the adult care team should be aware of when caring for their new patient.
  • Clinical Summary PDF: A template for the pediatric care provider to summarize the patient’s medical record, which is then transferred to the adult care provider.
  • Recommended Approach to Receiving a New Patient: A resource for the adult provider and includes information on how to begin the final phase of the transition.
  • Dosing Guide PDF: An overview of dosing strategies for patients with growth hormone deficiency.
