Practice Tools

The HCT-RN collaborated with the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Osteopathic Association (AOA), Got Transition/Center for Health Care Transition, Medicine-Pediatrics Program Direectors Association (MPPDA), Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM), and Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) to develop a medical summary/transfer record template and adapt Got Transition’s transition-readiness and self-care assessments and tools for youth and young adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities. These practice tools are free to download and use at the ACP website and are intended to assist physicians in transitioning young adults with chronic diseases/conditions into adult care settings.
