Autonomy means being in control of your own decisions. For pediatric patients living with IBD, there comes a time when you get to start making decisions about your health and care more on your own. Join me (Hannah), Leela, Kera, Fizza and Ryleigh for a chat about patient autonomy in IBD care.

Episode 33 of imPACt is a conversation among PAC members about autonomy in IBD care

You'll hear us share our perspectives as patients receiving care. We'll talk about what we think providers and parents/caregivers can do to help help us thrive as young adult patients taking on more autonomy. And we'll reflect on the feelings that come with not having an appropriate level of autonomy in IBD care.
