In Transition several important things happen.
First, the frequency of visits is decreased starting to save the financial costs. Typically there are three visits over the next six months. They go from monthly to every other month then every third month.
Second, during this spacing of the visits there is a spacing of the medicines. The doctor and staff carefully review with the patient which medications are spaced and which, if any, medications are continued daily.
Third, the importance of daily weights in monitoring oneself is explained. Finally in this phase the long term safety plan called CAP (Control, Action, and Panic) are established.
