Two cooperating projects ModuS-T (“Growing up with ModuS: Fit for the transition”) and Transition (“Promoting health care competence of adolescents with chronic diseases in the transition from paediatric to adult care systems”) have combined their data in this dataset. The target group were adolescents with chronic conditions aged 13-24 years (and their parents). The goal of both projects was to develop and test a chronic-generic education program to prepare adolescents for the transition. The ModuS-T project also developed modules for parents. The result was a 1.5-day workshop for young people and their parents, which was evaluated. The workshop is based on the principles of the modular training programme ModuS, that consists of disease-specific and generic modules and strengthens the empowerment of the participants. Further information on the projects and their results can be found in Ernst et al (2017), Menrath et al (2018) and Schmidt et al (2016).

Research Questions/Hypotheses: A 1.5-day transition workshop increases transition-oriented knowledge and competencies of adolescents with a chronic condition. Additionally, active patient participation and self-efficacy of the young people are increased. The workshop is applicable to a variety of diseases.
Research Design: Quasi-experimental Design , Mixed Design, Field Experiment; repeated measurements
Measurement Instruments/Apparatus: In a prospective controlled intervention study, the feasibility, acceptance and effectiveness of the newly developed patient education program was examined. First, all eligible patients were invited to participate in the education program at a fixed date. Those who were interested in the program and had time on the specified date were assigned to the intervention group (IG). Those who were interested in the program in principle but were unable to attend the program for various reasons were assigned to the control group (KG). At two measurement dates (immediately before (T0) and after the training (T1), 4 weeks later (ModuS) and 6 months later (Transition; T2), the participants of the IG had to fill in questionnaires. In addition, focus group interviews were conducted separately with the young people and the parents in 10 training courses. These served to supplement the quantitative data and to evaluate the workshops with the greatest possible openness. The participants of the KG filled out the questionnaire battery at two points in time (T0 and T2) at intervals of 4 weeks and 6 months respectively.
