Here we present key messages from the study - exploring direct experiences of young adult patients with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions as they move into adult health care. It provides a unique insight into how small changes in practice can make a real difference to the experiences of young adults. As a completely portable and resilient resource, it is recommended that this guide is used to provide helpful prompts for dealing with situations and questions that commonly arise when treating a young adult patient with palliative care needs.
