This study is looking at ways to help young people with chronic health conditions take better care of their health and find an adult doctor.

Study summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether providing targeted transition-related skills through interventions with varying degrees of intensity (from the low intensity Basic intervention group, to the mild intensity Group Intervention group, to the high intensity Full Intervention group) results in improved transition readiness and self-care skills and improved successful transition to adult-based services for young adults with chronic health conditions. Secondary objectives include determining if the transition interventions enhance transition-related satisfaction among participants, their caregivers and the involved pediatric and adult providers.
