The Transition of Care Committee brings together youth, parents/caregivers, IWK staff and community partners to share their ideas and work together to improve the experience of how youth with health care needs transition from the IWK Health Centre to adult medical care. Areas of work may include: shaping policy and practice, creating resources and web-based resources, program development, research and evaluation, work with community partners, strategic planning and workplan development.
We are seeking committee members who can build on their personal or professional experience of the transition to adult medical care by looking holistically at the care of youth and young adults and their caregivers during the transition period and working to positively shape the future direction of transition care at the IWK. We strive to reflect the diversity of the patient population at the IWK Health Centre as a primary and tertiary health care provider in Atlantic Canada.
