A Successful Healthcare Transition Program in a Hospital Setting
The Good 2 Go Transition Program (Good 2 Go) was founded in 2006 to support the patients and staff of the Hospital for Sick Children on transitions from pediatric to adult healthcare. Youth with special healthcare needs (YSHCN) needed clinical, educational, and other resources to successfully enter adult systems. Good 2 Go’s inter-professional team grew over time in size and capacity to develop transition initiatives within the hospital and larger community. This chapter describes the brief history, structure, processes, and outcomes over the past decade of the Good 2 Go Transition Program.
