How to Handle Adulting in Obesity: Case Studies in Transitional Care (Recorded)


Back to Package

Most adolescents are not adequately prepared to transition their care from pediatric-oriented to adult-oriented health care.  This is especially concerning given the chronic nature of obesity, access to anti-obesity medication, and utilization of metabolic-bariatric surgery in Adolescent Young Adults (AYA). Moreover, healthcare transitions occur at a time when AYA are also trying to navigate other developmental and emotional milestones.  Using the combined experiences of a pediatric psychologist, Med-Peds obesity medicine specialist, and Pediatric Obesity Coordinator of a Community Health Clinic, this session will inform clinicians and provide insight and specific recommendations on how to approach healthcare transitions in AYA with obesity.
