As part of the ‘Empowering Young Type III GD Patients to shape the Future’ project the type III young people have put together a new transition booklet, Maddie Collin who has been the lead on this projects writes;
“The idea for this booklet came from listening to everyone’s experiences with transitioning from paediatric to adult care and what they found challenging. Everyone played an important part in the making of this booklet whether that be writing articles, finding out information about the different page topics or coming up with ideas of the layout.
We hope that the booklet will help other type III’s to have a positive experience with transitioning and that it will help them with any questions or problems they are having. The booklet is based on our experiences as patients.
