Transitioning from pediatric to adult health care can be a challenge for teens and young adults with diabetes, their families, and pediatric and adult health care providers. Teens and young adults need to assume more responsibility for diabetes self-management and make more independent judgments about their health care needs. To support this process, the National Diabetes Education Program developed Transitions from Pediatric to Adult Care, an online tool to help teens with diabetes make a smooth transition to adult health care. Families and health care professionals will also find these materials very helpful.
