The Centre of Family Medicine, Mobiliy Clinic and McMaster University are conducting a study for transitional youth with physical disabilities in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Youth individuals with special healthcare needs often lose the quality of care they received as children once they turn 18 years old and must transition to the adult healthcare system.
This study will assess the need for a local program that would aim to help youth individuals with physical disability make the transfer from specialized pediatric care to adult care.
