Transition is a coordinated and progressive process aiming at the transfer of a young patient from a pediatric care to the adult health system. Transfer of medical care to adult facilities is a complex task requiring multiple involvements of both paediatric and adult care providers, taking into account the medical, psychosocial and educational needs of the youth. The Transition Working Group of the French Network for Rare Liver Diseases (Filfoie) proposes recommandations and tools in order to optimize the transition process and transfer of young people with chronic liver disease from child-centred to adult-centred healthcare services.
