Description

While there are many challenges associated with the transition from pediatric to adult health care for adolescents with developmental disabilities, we know little about the barriers that parents and health care professionals face during this transition. The current study conducted focus groups with parents and professionals to obtain a deeper understanding about their experiences and knowledge, as well as perceived barriers and supports regarding health care transition.
