About the Project
1) What multiple and multi-dimensional transitions are young adults experiencing due to their life-limiting health conditions, and educational and developmental stage?
(2) What multiple and multi-dimensional transitions are significant others experiencing due to the life-limiting health conditions, and educational and developmental stage of the young adults?
Using a longitudinal design, this study will collect data from young adults with life-limiting conditions in the UK, and their nominated family members, peers and professionals. This research will use participant-preferred data collection methods. An important aspect of this study will be innovations in methodology for undertaking research with these young adults and significant others. Similarly, consideration of ethics and innovations in obtaining and ensuring ongoing informed consent will be crucial aspects of this study.
