Description

This article presents an original study commissioned by the UK charity, Together for Short Lives which explored children and young people up to 25years of age with life-threatening/limiting conditions and their families. Using Appreciative Inquiry and framework analysis, qualitative work sought to explore perceived met and unmet needs of services and care. Fifty-one families were interviewed from one UK area, 18 of which were children/young people up to 25years old. Findings indicated that children and their families felt medical/nursing needs were well met but provision was needed for broader financial, social and emotional support alongside more responsive specialist therapies.
