Outcome Evaluation of a Pediatric to Adult Health Care Transition Model for Youth with Spina Bifida: Phase 2



This study aims to develop and implement a sustainable outcome evaluation strategy for a new transition model for youth with Spina Bifida at Holland Bloorview. We are develoing a database to capture clinical and program outcomes, which can be accessed for long-term evaluation of the transition model. Cross-sectional and longitudinal findings from this study will inform quality improvement efforts for transition services and guide the development and implementation of transition services at other centres. This information will also help the application of the transition model to other populations of youth with disabilities.
