Transfer Completion

Transfer Completion is the sixth element in the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition™ (HCT). This includes confirming transfer completion, offering pediatric consultation (as needed), and assessing consumer experience with transition supports. Closing the loop by confirming that the youth/young adult, who has transferred out of pediatric care, has established care with an adult clinician is an essential part of this core element. In addition, evaluating the success of the HCT process, with a mechanism to obtain and incorporate feedback from youth, young adults, and parents/caregivers, will improve the practice's approach to HCT.
