Call Me….Maybe: Collaboration between Child Life Specialists at Separate Institutions to Enhance Patient Care

In order to receive specialized care, many pediatric patients must travel away from their usual care team to other institutions. Collaboration between child life specialists at different institutions enhances the patient experience. This presentation will describe how two specialists identified a need for a transition tool and regular communication. Case examples, the transition tool and implications for practice will be shared. 

Objectives:
Identify potential gaps in communication regarding the transfer of patient care.
Discuss the implementation of a transfer form.
List strategies for enhancing patient coping, continuity of care and patient and family satisfaction.
