Academy Highlights Role of RDN in Transitions of Care

09/16/2020 - In response to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's request for comment on the key questions for its research project, "Transitions of Care from Pediatric to Adult Services for Children with Special Healthcare Needs," the Academy supported further review to define the state of science and improve care for this highly vulnerable population.

The Academy provided input on the importance of data exchange and access to quality care for Medicaid participants, and also suggested adding questions that compare outcomes grouped by length of time post-transition, as well as by patient characteristics. The Academy also advocated for highlighting strategies for recruiting RDNs and other allied health providers to serve this population.
