In this section
The adolescent transition team has developed a range of new
resources to support our education modules.
Our fact sheets cover
a range of topics intended to support and inform young people and
parents/carers throughout the transition process. Fact sheets cover
topics such as communicating with health professionals,
taking risks and making choices, sexual health, bullying and
resilience and young people's healthcare rights. These topics are
covered in each of our education modules which are delivered at
different stages of a young person's transition journey. There
are separate fact sheets for young people and parents/carers.
To complement the fact sheet a range of
checklists and tools have been
developed to assist young people in identifying any
gaps in their healthcare skills, develop competencies as well
as set some achievable goals, ultimately
promoting confidence and independence.
These resources can be used independently or as part
of the complete transition education package. The fact sheets
and checklists are ideally used in consultation with
the healthcare team and aim to empower young people and
parents/carers throughout the transition journey.
