There are several definitions of transition when used in a healthcare setting. Essentially they all cover the same principles of the process being planned, appropriately timed and flexible. Many models of transition exist which focus on either healthcare professional-driven approaches or patient-driven approaches. However none of these illustrate the specific processes involved in implementing the various models. This section will describe one model of transition (the sequential model) and the practical application of that process within a healthcare organisation.
