Project Title

Development and Planning for Integrated Pediatric to Adult Transition Clinics for Crohn’s Disease Patients Living in Canada

Currently, there is no consensus on a transition model for Crohn's disease (CD) patients exiting the pediatric healthcare setting and transitioning to adult care. If successful, this project will develop a globally scalable transition model that can effectively streamline pediatric to adult CD care, in order to improve medication adherence, social acceptability and empowerment over one’s disease management course.
