Transitioning Pediatric Patients to Adult Health Care – PediaCast CME 025

Show Notes / Continuing Medical Education Information

DESCRIPTION
Dr Patience White visits the PediaCast Studio to talk about the transition of pediatric patients to adult health care. Smooth transitions result in best outcomes, but they don’t happen on their own.
