Adolescent Transition Care

We are estab­lish­ing a new Statewide Ado­les­cent Tran­si­tion Care Clin­i­cal Network.


This Net­work aims to iden­ti­fy and address key sys­tem issues to improve the qual­i­ty and deliv­ery of care of patients tran­si­tion­ing from ado­les­cent to adult health ser­vices in South Australia.
