Children and teenagers with 22q receive medical care from children’s hospitals until they reach about 17 or 18 years old. At that point, many of them continue to receive care at hospitals for adults.
To help patients make the transition smoothly to the Dalglish Family 22q Clinic at the Toronto General Hospital, the 22q Deletion Syndrome Clinic and the Good 2 Go Team at SickKids have developed the Transition Day Program. This full day program gives individuals with 22q information about adult care and shows how we make a smooth transition.
The Dalglish Clinic is an active partner in the Transition Day Program for individuals with 22q. We welcome the participants and ease their anxiety as they meet their new medical providers.
We look forward to holding our next 22q Transition Clinic on Tuesday, May 15th, 2018.
