MetadataShow full item record
Background: The process of moving from a paediatric to adult health care setting is known as health care transition (HCT). The current lack of transition planning to determine and ensure readiness means patients with chronic conditions experience less than ideal outcomes. There is a lack of a widely used, validated instrument to assess readiness to transition in adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF). Objective: To develop the Cystic Fibrosis Health Care Transition Readiness Scale and assess this instrument for face and content validity.
