Abstract

This transition process resulted in successful transition as measured by TTR and other clinical end-points from pediatric to adult care. Implementing a formal transition process for young adults with chronic health conditions that considers patient preferences motivates and empowers them over time to develop autonomy with warfarin self-management, results in successful transition and warfarin management.
