Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member co-edits book for teens with special needs

(NEWARK, N.J., April 23, 2007) -- A Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member has co-edited a book that examines the transition children with special health care needs and disabilities face when they move from pediatric care to adult health care.

Promoting Health Care Transitions for Adolescents with Special Health Care Needs and Disabilities, co-edited by Wendy M.

Betz, director of nurse training and director of research, University of Southern California, University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, is a book that helps health professionals develop an effective health care transition plan to ensure effective, coordinated health care as adolescents reach adulthood.
