There are unique needs for students with chronic illnesses as they transition to adulthood. College is a critical period as there is more independence, often including greater individual accountability for health. Many young patients are lost as they transition abruptly, without preparing for independence with their health. Newfound freedom can be a catalyst of psychosocial stressors. This session will include methods to support young patients’ needs in their transitionary period beginning with college.
- Advanced Practice Clinician
- Health Educator
- Health Information Management Professional
- Mental Health Professional
The participants should be able to:
- Define what independence means for chronically ill students as they enter college.
- Describe how colleges and related stakeholders can support young adults with chronic conditions.
- Discuss different challenging advocacy scenarios chronically ill students may encounter as they progress through college.
