This session considers the young person with a chronic condition as the expert in terms of participation, peer support and self-management.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe key concepts of participation of young people with long-term conditions and/or disability
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of peer support for young people with long-term conditions and/or disability

Participation is the process by which young people influence decision making in a way which brings about change in them, others, their service and their communities. It is distinct from involvement and consultation.
