About the Network
This Network will aim 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.
Statewide Adolescent Transition Care Clinical Network Steering Committee
Applications for Steering Committee membership closed on 24 December 2020. We were delighted with the number and quality of applications received and sincerely thank all applicants for their willingness to be involved.
We have elected an Interim Steering Committee for 6 months before we formally establish a working structure based on the outcomes and impact the network wishes to have.
During the first six months we intend to gather as much information as possible from our network of clinicians, carers and people with lived experience to inform and define the impact we want to have and how we achieve that.
Please keep a watch on this webpage for opportunities.
