The transition from pediatric to adult health care is a challenging yet important process in rheumatology as most childhood-onset rheumatic diseases persist into adulthood. Numerous reports on unmet needs as well as evidence of negative impact from poor transition have led to increased efforts to improve transition care, including international guidelines and recommendations. In line with these recommendations, transition programs along with transition readiness assessment tools have been established. Despite these efforts, there are still a lot of work to be done for transition care in rheumatology. This review article focuses on how transition care in rheumatology has developed in recent years and highlights the gaps in current practices. View Full-Text
