Third International summer course on children and adolescents with chronic illness
This international course will cover a wide range of themes linked to chronic illness such as mental health, risk behaviors, economic aspects, or therapeutic education. The third edition of the international summer school will last 2 days this year as it will be followed by the first European symposium on transition. Participants who attend the summer school can attend the symposium free of charge and can submit abstracts.
We are delighted to organize the first European Symposium on Transition that will take place at the Lausanne University Hospital. Transition from pediatric to adult care for adolescents with chronic illness has been a growing theme of interest in clinic as well as in research for the past 2 decades. The aim of this symposium is to gather experts in transition from around Europe in order to share experiences and think together on where to go from now.
