    Purpose 

    The rationale underlying this study was the need to move the transition health services model from a theoretical framework to an empirically-based investigation.

    Thus, it was necessary to identify programs for youth with chronic or disabling conditions that assist in transitioning from child-to adult-focused health services by (a) discrete types, (b) functional categories, and (c) problems and issues faced by these programs.

    Methods 

    Nominations for transition health services programs were solicited from 1025 organizational agencies at the local, state, regional, and national levels.

    Two solicitations yielded 277 nominees.

    After pilot testing, a survey of 163 forced responses and open-ended questions was mailed to each nominated transition health services program.

    A total of 122 programs returned completed surveys.

    Results 

    Program services were categorized as adolescent-focused (38%), condition-focused (36%), and specialty-specific programs (26%). Few programs were primary care-based.

    Categories were subsequently collapsed into two types : adolescent-focused and condition-focused.

    No significant differences were noted between adolescent-and condition-focused programs regarding provision of mental health services, vocational counseling, self-efficacy training, or health education.

    The primary barriers to transition health services were identified as funding and access to key staff, rather than family and adolescent resistance. (...)
