Brief Summary

We are conducting a research project with Perth Children’s Hospital and Telethon Kids Institute, called the Childhood Chronic Illness Priority Setting Project. We are surveying young people with chronic conditions (aged 14 to 25 years), parents/caregivers of children and young people with a chronic condition or disability and professionals working with children and young people with chronic conditions or disabilities, to ask what research they think needs to be done. By chronic conditions, we mean any physical illness or disability that has had long-term effects on a child or young person.

We are interested in understanding the most important questions, concerns or priorities that can be addressed through research. Responses will be used to develop research projects to answer the questions that are most important to people like you.
