"Adolescent experiences in a major metropolitan adult hospital within the inner Sydney area"

Chronic illness is common among adolescents and imposes additional stress for those coping with the maturation process of this age. Transition from a paediatric hospital to an adult hospital can be particularly stressful for adolescents with chronic illness and the understanding of the views and expectations of these patients should assist those who are responsible for the development of health care.

The Department of Adolescent and Transition Medicine provides support, education, advocacy, policy and recreation to young patients aged 12 to 24 years old admitted into Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPAH), a major metropolitan hospital within the inner Sydney area.
