Starship Diabetes Adolescent Transition Programme and Clinics

The Adolescent Transition Programme is integrated into all paediatric diabetes clinics for young people aged 14 and over. 

Starship Diabetes Adolescent Transition Programme aims

Our greatest concern as health professionals is that adolescents may become lost in the process and cease regular attendance with specialised services. This is likely to be associated with increased risk of acute and long-term complications of diabetes

All young people are scheduled a formal consultation with a Transition Lead person within regular outpatient clinic around the age of 14 years. At this time, young people and their families are issued with a Diabetes Adolescent Starter pack. This pack outlines what families can expect within the Diabetes Adolescent Transition Programme.
