Toolkit for Transitioning Medical Care
It is so important that the members of your adult hydrocephalus medical team have the proper information about your hydrocephalus to successfully manage your care. And, as we know, everyone with hydrocephalus is different. For this reason, the Hydrocephalus Association, their Medical Advisory Board, and members of the American Society of Pediatric Neurosurgeons (ASPN) developed the Medical Summary for Transitioning Hydrocephalus Patients that you can download and fill out with your current pediatric medical team. Once complete, take this to your new adult neurosurgeon, neurologist, and any other members of your adult medical team you feel will benefit from understanding your journey with hydrocephalus. This includes a Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, other specialists.
