Transition to adulthood

Transition of Patients Who Reach the Age of 18 Years

Over the last several years we have built a clinical and research collaborative program with physicians at the Department of Haematology and Internal Medicine at the Princess Margaret Hospital. Children with bone marrow failure or myelodysplasia who reach the age of 18 years as well as patients who are diagnosed with bone marrow failure in adulthood are treated at this facility. The patients are seen in two main clinics:
