Transition of Care Toolkit
OCC3 for Kids is working to create seamless transition from services for youth with special health care needs to services for adults. We have developed a Transition Toolkit, based on the Got Transition model and tailored to Orange County, that includes components for health care providers, youth, parents and service providers. The Transition Toolkit, which can be customized, includes these elements:
- Sample policy statement
Transition Tracking and Monitoring
- Sample individual transition flow sheet
- Sample transition registry
- Sample transition readiness assessment for youth
- Sample transition readiness assessment for parents/caregivers
- Sample plan of care
- Sample medical summary and emergency care plan
Transfer of Care
- Sample transfer letter
- Sample health care transition feedback survey for youth
- Sample health care transition feedback survey for parents/caregivers)
Resources for Transition
OCC3 for Kids has compiled a list of resources related to transition age youth to help with everything from health care skills and health services to school, employment, independent living, and community resources.
