Diabetes 360: Season 7, Episode 6
Transitions are hard. The transition from pediatric to adult care in type 1 diabetes (T1D) can be especially fraught. Add in barriers beyond just living with diabetes and that adds a whole other layer of complexity, but researchers around the world are working to ensure better outcomes for all.
Today on the Diabetes Canada Podcast we’re talking to Dr. Rayzel Shulman about the transition from pediatric to adult care in T1D. Dr. Shulman is a pediatric endocrinologist at Sick Kids Hospital and an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. Her research is focused on developing and evaluating health services interventions to improve outcomes and the quality of care for youth with T1D as they transition to adulthood.
