Event description

Description

  • Skill preparation and planning for health care transition for children and youth with special health care needs is inadequate. Less than 50% of families nationwide indicate that their children with special health care needs have received services necessary to make appropriate transitions to adult health care, work and independence. One of the major hurdles to receiving care is the lack of physician workforce trained to provide the services necessary to make the health care transition. There is a strong need for physicians to have the knowledge and skills to provide the services needed to facilitate a successful transition from pediatric to adult-based care and services.
  • Because of increased awareness of transitioning to adult-based care, clinicians are required to update their knowledge of the changing strategies for integrating emerginig adult-based care into practice.
  • For all conference participants, there will be a discussion of the legal issues involved in health care transition, as well as time to talk with the faculty, to exchange ideas among participants, and to share knowledge and information about how best to plan for a successful transition to adulthood.
  • There will be no charge for participants and box lunches will be provided each day by Total Medical Supply and Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield.
  • CEUs will be available for Nurses and Social Workers.
  • Parking for the 2 day conference will be in several locations...UAMS parking deck 2 will charge $7 per day. Free parking is available in the War Memorial and Ray Winder Parking lots and the UAMS shuttle can bring you to the College of Public Health building for the downlink.
