Do your parents manage your healthcare? Are your caregivers responsible for ordering your prescriptions, making appointments and talking to your doctor or nurse? If so, you may need to discuss sharing these tasks.
One transition tool you might already have is a cell phone! Keep your provider information in your contacts, take a picture of your health history to have on hand for appointments. Use the calendar to manage your appointments and the alarm for medication or treatment reminders.
If you have a smartphone, health and transition apps are at your fingertips! Check out this YHT developed by McMaster University - My Transition App!
Learning to manage your health and your health care can take a while, so be patient with yourself. Learn about your health needs so you can 'Take Care of You'!
