Abstract

In 2019 the Italian Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (SIGENP) and the Italian Society of Artificial Nutrition and Metabolism (SINPE) created a joint panel of experts with the aim of preparing an official statement on transition in Chronic Intestinal Failure (CIF). The transition from pediatric to adult care has a key role in managing all chronic diseases and in optimizing the compliance to care. Thus SIGENP and SINPE, in light of the growing number of patients with IF who need long-term Parenteral Nutrition (PN) and multidisciplinary rehabilitation programs throughout adulthood, shared a common protocol to provide an accurate and timely process of transition from pediatric to adult centers for CIF. The main objectives of the transition process for CIF can be summarized as the so-called "acronym of the 5 M": 1)Motivate independent choices which are characteristics of the adult world; 2)Move towards adult goals (e.g. self-management of his pathology and sexual issues); 3)Maintain the habitual mode of care; 4) Minimize the difficulties involved in the transition process and 5)Modulate the length of the transition so as to fully share with the adult's team the children's peculiarities.
