Abstract

Improving the adaptation from pediatric environment to adult environment would facilitate the transition of experiences of young people with epilepsy and caregivers. Critical Care Services Ontario (2017) has published guidelines for the transition of these youth to begin coordination of health services. However, the organization makes no recommendation as to the components of the transition program. To our knowledge, two Canadian programs started with 17-year-olds, leaving little time for developing self-management skills around epilepsy. Based on empirical writings and the needs expressed by youth and caregivers, an innovative transition program, conceived in partnership between CHU Sainte-Justine and the CHUM, will be presented as well as examples of associated clinical projects and research.

This conference will be presented in French.
