GUEST SPEAKER Dr. Keith Coffman Director, Tourette Syndrome Center of Excellence Director, Movement Disorders Clinic Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas City Keith Coffman, M.D., is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. His clinical specialties include tics and Tourette Syndrome; movement disorders; developmental delay; neurodegenerative disorders and neurogenetic disorders. Dr. Coffman attended medical school at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and completed his Pediatrics and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities residencies at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. This was followed by a research fellowship in Systems Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. His research focus is on the neuroanatomy of the cerebellar vermis and its role in motor control and higher cognitive function. OVERVIEW In this webinar, we will discuss the process of transitioning from Pediatric to Adult care for patients with Tourette Syndrome, Chronic Tic Disorders, and co-occurring conditions. There are a number of dramatic contrasts between Pediatric and Adult medicine that often complicate transition process. For example, the dynamics of an adult medical visit are completely different than in a Pediatric medical visit. Also, coordination of care between medical providers is often more complicated and is more patient driven. Participants of this webinar will be presented with strategies to manage these and other challenges inherent to the transition process.


After participating in this webinar, participants should be better able to: 

  • Identify the hurdles that can impede successful transition to adult care and how to overcome them.
  • Identify the significant contrasts between a Pediatric and Adult medical visit and use strategies to manage these contrasting models of care
  • Discuss how to advocate for themselves to facilitate effective care coordination between multiple medical providers.
