Transition is a programme of research that aims to address this question:
How can health services contribute most effectively to facilitating successful transition of young people with complex health needs from childhood to adulthood?
Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle University have developed a research programme to answer this question. The programme involves further NHS Trusts and the voluntary sector.
The Transition Research Programme is independent research commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research (the research arm of the NHS) under its Programme Grants for Applied Research funding scheme (RP-PG-0610-10112).
