About this book

This unique handbook provides pediatric and adult endocrinologists and multidisciplinary clinical care providers a guide to transition from pediatric to adult care and an understanding of developmental and psychosocial issues of young adulthood and how they relate to healthcare and disease self-management. The handbook is divided into two parts. Part one describes transition interventions and novel strategies that can be integrated into routine care and gives practical considerations for transition processes from both the pediatric and adult perspectives, with applications across multiple endocrine conditions. Part two focuses on transition issues specific to common endocrine conditions – type 1 and type 2 diabetes, Turner syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, endocrine sequelae of childhood cancer, and transgender care – with condition-specific developmental and psychosocial issues, treatment and screening recommendations, healthcare process considerations, transition care guidelines, and key resources for more information. By highlighting medical, psychosocial, and healthcare delivery concerns relevant to transition to adult care, this book provides a practical, patient-centered overview of the essential information to supporting optimal adult care transition across a number of endocrine conditions.  Timely and practical, Transitioning from Pediatric to Adult Care in Endocrinology: A Clinical Handbook is an excellent resource for pediatric and adult endocrinologists, behavioral healthcare providers, allied health professionals, primary care providers, and all clinical staff working with young people with endocrine conditions as they transition from children to adults.
