IPTA - SPLIT Webinar - May 31, 2022

"Preparing Our Pediatric Patients for the Future" Webinar Series from the International Pediatric Transplant Association and the Society of Pediatric Liver Transplantation

The Effects of Adolescent and Young Adult Cognitive and Executive Functioning on Transition of Care in SOT

Tuesday May 31, 2022 - 2:00 PM (Local time in Montreal)
Local time (Corresponding local time at your current location)
The duration of this webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes.

Overview

The goal of this session is to educate providers all across the globe of neurocognitive deficits (e.g., cognitive and executive functioning) that affect the SOT adolescent population and how this impacts the transition to adult care. Patients who undergo SOT are at risk for poorer executive functioning skills, including deficits in processing speed, memory, attention, and problem-solving.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss current trends and literature related to prevalence of neurocognitive deficits in pediatric SOT and its effects on skills necessary for optimal transition to adult care
  2. Review neurocognitive screening practices and tools that transplant centers may use to identify deficits in this population and discuss when and how often they should be employed
  3. Discuss how neurocognitive deficits impact transition of care including legal implications from different international perspectives
  4. Review community resources surrounding transition of care for those transplant recipients with identified neurocognitive deficits
