Youth Priorities

We want to make sure our research is guided by what young people with chronic conditions believe is important for them. Previous research with young Australians with chronic conditions, and their caregivers and health professionals has identified the following priorities:

  • increasing participation in school and social activities

  • strengthening capacity to cope

  • promoting family wellbeing

  • improving quality of care

You can read more about this research here. In 2019 we will be conducting research to understand more about the priorities of young people and their families and health professionals when it comes to promoting coping, wellbeing and resilience. If you are interested in participating in this project, please sign up to our mailing list. You will be emailed with an invitation to participate once the study is open.
