Training Overview Description

Each year, AUCD supports the live broadcast of Baylor College of Medicine's Chronic Illness and Disability Conference: Transition from Pediatric to Adult-Based Care. This is a unique and low-cost professional development and learning opportunity for faculty, staff, and trainees from LENDs, DBPs, UCEDDs, and IDDRCs. It can also be a great way to engage community partners, including leaders from self-advocacy and family organizations. CART captioning will be provided for all broadcast sessions.

  • The current state of health care transition
  • Legal issues in the transition from pediatric to adult-based care

Benefits of participating as a broadcast site:

  • Low-cost access one of the nation's most reputable transition-focused conferences that is packed with content from a diverse cadre of national experts.
  • The link you receive to the live broadcast can be used to host an in-person viewing event with faculty, trainees, community partners, etc. It's a great way to encourage dialogue about what can be done to advance existing transition initiatives or start new ones!
  • You can also share the broadcast link with individuals affiliated with your center/program so they can join from more convenient locations.

To register your program/center as a broadcast site:

  • Complete and send the registration form and $150 payment to axromero@texaschildrens.org.
