Supporting the Transition to Adulthood with Type 1 Diabetes in a University Setting
This study consists of mixed-methods (semi-structured interviews and survey questions), co-design methodology with relevant stakeholders (young adults, parents of young adults, and providers of young adults) to determine the factors that influence a successful transition to college/university with type 1 diabetes. Moreover, we are soliciting information on the young adult transition experience and specific recommendations for delivering future interventions on a college/university campus. We will use these data to inform next steps in creation of a pilot comprehensive psychosocial support program at the University of Windsor, with hopes to expand to other college/university settings after that.
Please note that recruitment for this study is now closed. Data analysis and manuscript preparation is underway.
