The care for adults with spina bifida is an important area to study. As increasing numbers of patients with spina bifida survive into adulthood, they expect to thrive and receive the best possible care into adulthood to maintain their health. Understanding the health needs in this emerging and changing population will help clinicians provide the best anticipatory care for adults with spina bifida and continue to improve outcomes. This will also impact pediatric care by improving the ability to determine preventive methods from early on and understand the impacts of pediatric care and decisions over the lifespan.
