The proposed study has been designed to understand needs, expectations, and experiences of emerging adults, parents, and healthcare providers who have or currently are involved in the transition process in T1D. Although, a few previous studies have focused on exploring these aspects of the transition process, these have mostly been at a regional level focusing on a few clinics instead of an attempt to capture responses at a national level. Additionally, as part of this study, each responding stakeholder participant will be requested to invite other other stakeholder group members who they might know to complete the questionnaire (e.g. a T1D patient sharing study information with their parents and their endocrinologist). This would allow the investigators to get a comprehensive picture of the transition process. The study consists of three phases including an online questionnaire (specific to each stakeholder group) (Phase 1), semi-structured phone interviews with a few participants from each stakeholder participant group (Phase 2), and subsequently, developing recommendations for a transition process that aligns the needs and expectations of the various stakeholder groups (Phase 3).
This project has the potential to highlight T1D patients', their families, and providers' concerns and expectations regarding the transition process from a national sample which, could help develop recommendations to implement a patient-centered, successful transition process for emerging adults with T1D.
Phase 1: To explore needs, expectations, and experiences of emerging adults with T1D, their parents, and healthcare providers around the transition process.
Phase 2: To conduct semi-structured interviews with participants from three stakeholder groups for in-depth understanding of the issues related to the transition process
Phase 3: To develop recommendations for a patient-centered transition process for emerging adults with T1D
