Methods Patients with chronic kidney disease and early stage breast cancer were recruited consecutively via Cardiff and Vale University Health ...

Abstract Purpose Adolescents living with long-term conditions (LTCs) often feel as though they are left out of discussions and decisions with healthcare professionals, which can give them the impression that their views are not important. Research around decision-making during clinical encounters often fails to represent adolescents' perspectives. This study explores adolescents' perceptions and experiences, focusing on identifying the perceived barriers to, and facilitators for, their involveme...
