    A Family-Centered Research Agenda for Improving Health Care Transitions for Children with Special Health Care Needs

    Tuesday, December 7, 2021 10:00 am to 11:00 am PT

    Over the past three years, researchers and family leaders from across the country have partnered to develop a national research agenda focused on improving the health care system for children and youth with special health care needs. Their first product, a newly published article titled Improving Health Care Transitions for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, is one in an eight-part series to be published as a supplement to Academic Pediatrics.
     
    In this webinar, the article's authors will discuss the health care transition process for adolescents and young adults with special health care needs, describe their study's findings, and reflect on the implications of their recommendations. We suggest that attendees read the article prior to the webinar. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.

    This work is led by the Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Research Network (CYSHCNet). CYSHCNet was founded in 2017 through a cooperative agreement with the Health Services and Resources Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
