11: Congenital: Case 2 Part 2: Teenage Kirsten
Kirsten is now 16 years old and today is her first appointment at the teenage clinic, before her care is transferred to the adult service. She meets with a cardiologist from the adult service and a nurse specialist.
Moving from the care of paediatric cardiac services to adult cardiac services can be difficult for teenagers and their families. To aid them in making a smooth move across these services, there is increasing recognition that they should be provided with specialist transition support.
