Challenges in measuring healthcare transition readiness: Taking stock and looking forward.

J Pediatr Nurs 2019 Mar 28;46:109-117. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

School of Nursing, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada; School of Nursing, Linfield College, Portland, Oregon, United States of America. Electronic address:

Given the centrality of construct conceptualization in measure development and validity theory, analysis of measurement implications of conceptualizations of transition readiness is essential.

Phenomenon Addressed: The purpose of this paper is to provide a review and critical analysis of transition readiness measurement through the lens of construct conceptualization and its implications for validation and healthcare transition research. Read More

Authors:
Andrew Mantulak

J Pediatr Nurs 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

School of Social Work, King's University College at Western University, 266 Epworth Avenue, London, Ontario N6A 2M3, Canada. Electronic address:

In everyday clinical practice, health professionals and parents of chronically ill children often rely on the principle of 'best interest' in the development of medically oriented treatment plans. In most cases, such processes are done collaboratively; however, 'best interest' as a standard for decision-making becomes ambiguous in situations wherein parents and health professionals fail to agree on the course of treatment. This paper will explore the potential tensions that can exist in clinical practice when 'best interest' is used for making health care decisions. Read More
