  • Manuscripts Sought for Physiotherapy Canada Series on Transitioning Youth

    Physiotherapy Canada is seeking submissions for a special series of journal articles that will consider transitions for youth with chronic conditions or disabilities. Children with disabilities and chronic conditions are living longer, and there is increased interest in designing interventions that will help youth transition to adulthood. Key transitions include not only the move from pediatric to adult health care services but also gradual changes in social roles and activities, such as completing high school, leaving the family home, and working.

    Topics of most interest for the series, which will run over the next 2 years, include:

    • Empirical evaluation of transitions models, programs, and services
    • Youth and family experiences of transitions
    • Critical engagement with transition theory
    • Analyses of transition policies
    • Global perspectives on transitions

    Qualitative or quantitative empirical studies are preferred, but high-quality commentaries or reviews will be considered.
