Published in the Journal of Clinical Nursing this paper explores the experiences of the families of young adults with intellectual disabilities at the point of transition from child to adult health services.
There is an urgent need to respond to the challenges experienced by carers at the point of transition and beyond, by ensuring early and coordinated planning, effective information sharing and communication and clear transition processes and guidelines. A person‐centred and family‐centred approach is required to minimise negative impact on the health and well‐being of the young adult with intellectual disabilities and their carers.
