Abstract

Young adults with sickle cell disease must navigate a difficult road to independence once they age out of pediatric care. The anxiety surrounding transition, the challenges of medical complications, and chronic psychosocial stressors are obstacles to a seamless transition to adult medical care. The two cases presented here demonstrate that a team-based, multidisciplinary approach can facilitate a successful transition.
