Surgeon General's Conference: Growing Up and Getting Medical Care: Youth with Special Health Care Needs: A Summary of Conference Proceedings
Description:
From the Executive Summary: "This agenda includes the issue of young people moving from pediatric services to adult health care. This period of transition can be an anxiety provoking time for adolescents, their families, and for those who work on their behalf, and further efforts must be made to bridge this potential gap in services." In his Introductory Remarks, Dr. C. Everett Koop spoke out forcefully on this issue: "For the rest of this century, everything we discuss in reference to medicine, health care delivery or policy will merely be symptomatic of the overarching tension between our aspirations for health care and our resources to pay for them. The two populations at greatest risk of medical neglect are the elderly and children. We will have to fight harder than ever for the funds to care for special needs children and young people. It is unlikely that any administration or any Congress will address this issue on the clear merits of the situation--in spite of the nation's affluence and prosperity. But the day will come when the business community will exert much greater pressure than at present for a more realistic method of funding health care. We must be prepared for that day so our special needs children are not shortchanged as the health care delivery system is rebuilt."
