Improving young people’s engagement during planned spinal consultations: collaborative development of an Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) consultation facilitation guide.


Aims of the study


This proposal was developed through consultation with young people (n=8) who have had AIS and parents of AIS children (n=2). Our PPI work and literature review highlight that the proposed CFG would be welcomed in supporting young people to gain information from their specialist clinician. The CFG will be a simple tool which young people can use, along with their parents, before and during their consultation. This study will be conducted in 2 phases and will provide the foundations (a developed CFG and feasibility study of methods) for a larger grant application to assess the influence of the CFG on clinical practice.
