Ongoing medical advances contribute to the increasing number of patient’s today living with congenital heart disease CHD). Adolescents and young adults with CHD must have knowledge and ability to take charge of their health care decisions as they begin transition from pediatric-centered health care to adult-centered health care. The purpose of this study was to investigate the self care ability and perceived needs of adolescents with CHD. Multiple self care variables were examined and the Roy adaptation model was used to direct the study. Analysis of domains by education found statistically significant findings in the areas of maintaining health records and managing special health care needs. Also, though not statistically significant, results implied concerns with some aspects of self care ability by the adolescent Nursing implications are that the nurse can better assist the adolescent with CHD when they have more specific knowledge of their self care abilities.
