• AYAs did not perceive parental involvement as indicative of transition readiness.
• Parents perceived AYA responsibility as indicative of transition readiness.
• AYA older age was associated with a greater perception of overall transition readiness.
• Disease severity was not associated with overall transition readiness.
Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) often transfer from pediatric to adult care without adequate preparation, resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. The purpose of this descriptive research study of parent/AYA dyads was to measure perceptions of transition readiness. Factors that were found to be associated with perceptions of increased readiness to transition included AYA age, the amount of responsibility AYAs assume for their healthcare and the degree of parent involvement. More attention should be focused on these aspects of care to improve transition from pediatric to adult care for AYAs with sickle cell disease.
