Your key source for managing the transition period

Paediatricians face many questions and challenges during patients' transition from childhood to adulthood. Chronic diseases justify long-term medical, psychological, educational, and social management. The establishment of networks with adult endocrinologists is, therefore, very important in achieving optimal conditions for a successful transition period.

In this book, leading experts discuss such major public health issues as diabetes and obesity. They also review genetic diseases, including Turner syndrome and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. All clinical cases are presented in a focused way to highlight any issues that the doctor might discuss with patients and family. Psychological approaches are debated – as are proposals for defining specific tools to encourage autonomy during this life period.

This book is a valuable tool and will be helpful in answering many questions for endocrinologists - adult and paediatric - dedicated to the long-term management of patients with chronic diseases.

Editors: Michel Polak and Philippe Touraine
