Transition to adult care is a challenge for the entire healthcare team and for many different reasons. It requires time, patience, attention to detail, sensitivity to fears, and a focus on positive outcomes. The healthcare team as well as the patient and family have a very important role to create a successful transition while working together. This educational activity will provide the learners with counseling techniques, tools, and skills to improve quality of life (QOL) during this phase. Nutrient recommendations for the ESRD adolescent and factors that affect nutritional intake will be reviewed as well.
