The Role of Shared Decision Making As Pediatric EoE Patients Transition To Adult Care

For most parents, helping their child who has a chronic digestive health condition, like Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE), transition from pediatric to adult health care is a big step. In this episode, Pediatric Gastroenterologist Dr. Amanda Muir and Gastroenterologist Dr. Kristle Lee Lynch, highlight the process and offer guidance for pediatric EoE patients (and their parents) on what to expect as they transition to adult GI care. Both doctors offer tips and insight for parents and young EoE patients to help make this handoff more manageable, including what happens to the parents’ role during and after their child’s transition to adult care and how to prepare young adult EoE patients for managing their own health care.
