The transition from child to adult services with rehabilitation needs – what does it take to get it right?
Friday 13 May 2016
12.45 – 1.30pm

This was a webinar to support the NHSCSI Improving Rehabilitation Services Community Practice (IRSCOP).

This 45 minute webinar highlighted the importance of providing support and guidance to young people with rehabilitation needs transitioning into adulthood.

Speakers included a young person with experience of moving from children's to adult's services, and providers who have experience of establishing NHS services to support such a transition. The emphasis will be on lessons learned and transferable knowledge that may apply across physical or mental health rehabilitation settings in child or adult health.

The webinar was chaired by Dawn Smith, Senior Associate for NHS Clinical Soft Intelligence Service.

Speakers included:

  • Thines Ganeshamoorthy, University student, blogger, campaigner
  • Julia Smith, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dr Nick Wilkinson, Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist, Evelina London Children’s Hospital,
    Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

Learning Objectives:

After the webinar, participants:

  • Have heard from a service-user and service providers about their perspectives of the values, behaviours and actions of individuals across the system that can help or hinder transition for young people.
  • Have reflected upon their own experience of values, behaviours and actions that help or hinder locally.
  • Have considered values, behaviours or actions from the speakers that they could apply locally to improve the process of transition.
  • Understand the importance of the active engagement of young people in design and evaluation of transition systems and processes.
