Purpose: Transition of care and transfer of care are two major areas of IBD care that should receive significant attention because they have major potential for quality improvement.  This survey will provide the ICN Transition of Care Task Force with more information about the number of centers providing transition education, the transition tools they are using, and how they are using these tools.  It will also provide us with information on transfer of care, such as what age patients are being transferred and how does the hand-off of clinical information occur at the time of transfer.

Primary/Secondary Outcomes:

  • Primary Outcome: Identify the centers in ImproveCareNow providing transition education
  • Secondary Outcome: Identify the centers in ImproveCareNow that have a transfer process for their patients

Study Period: Survey conducted in the fall of 2015.
