Chronic health conditions affect approximately forty percent of Australian children. Despite this, there are no overarching national guidelines for the transition from paediatric to adult care across conditions, and limited evidence to support existing practice. To improve this transition for all young people with a chronic health condition, new research is being conducted by researchers from the University of New South Wales, with collaborators across NSW, Victoria and SA.
We are seeking young adults with IBD who have transitioned to adult care, or their parents, to be involved in online focus groups so that we can better understand the challenges of transition and what can be done better. All participants will be compensated $50/hour in gift cards, with workshops expected to take 2 hours.
