Why is this study happening?

In Ireland, people with cerebral palsy receive healthcare from children's services up to the age of 18, after which they transfer to adult services.

In this project, we want to examine how transition is managed for young people with cerebral palsy in Ireland and explore the views of young people, their families and health professionals on how to improve this process. We will use the findings from this research to identify resources that might make it easier for young people with cerebral palsy to move from child to adult health services.
