Publication date2018

The transition from a pediatrician to a general practitioner builds on a strong relationship with the pediatrician. Informed consent and decision making in children and adolescents are greatly improved by a trustful relationship with healthcare providers. In Switzerland, minors can access their medical file without parental consent if considered competent. Electronic files can be helpful but may lead to breeches in confidentiality : transmission of data concerning the family or parent's health status not relevant for the adolescent's medical follow-up, parental access to the medical files. A simple transmission file can be given to the adolescent at the end of pediatric follow up. Visits to mark the end of the pediatric follow-up and the beginning of the GP follow-up should be systematically offered to young people with special needs.
