What is an AACPDM eCourse?

An AACPDM e-Course is a 3-4 week, online, self-paced educational course with the opportunity to earn continuing education credits. This program hosted two courses in 2016. Our first e-Course was International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), and the second course was Orthopedic Surgery for Adults with Cerebral Palsy.

E-Courses offer a chance to connect with professionals around the world! Anyone who registers for a course will be able to interact through a discussion board weekly during the course.

E-Courses also offer the chance to earn CME and CEUs. The exact amount of CME/CEU available varies by the specific course, but totals are typically 3-4 hours.


Presenters: Susan Labhard, MSN, RN; Sue Leibold, MSN, RN; Jan Willem Gorter, MD, PhD, FRCP(C); Ronna Linroth, PhD; Wilma van der Slot, MD PhD

Course Description:
The goals of this course are to improve knowledge of transition to adulthood and age-appropriate treatment of young people with childhood onset needs. We will share expertise from North America and the Netherlands on core transition components, interventions to promote self-management capabilities of adolescents and young adults with disabilities, and the importance for supporting youth as they move into the culture of adult life beyond medical care alone. Transition challenges and solutions will be illustrated by presenting transition resources and best practices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To gain awareness of the broad implications of transition and the developmental needs of youth with child onset conditions.
  2. To identify steps to formalize transition services for youth with chronic needs.
  3. To explore application of transition interventions in a variety of settings.
  4. To use evidence-based practices to advise transition program planning.

The AACPDM would like to thank these presenters for generously volunteering their time to present this eCourse
