Abstract: The increasing population of adolescents with multiple and complex needs (MCN), who are at the extreme end of a spectrum of case complexity, poses an important challenge to child and adolescent social and health care. Adolescent girls with MCN are especially vulnerable and suffer from fragmentation of services. Yet, their service needs are not comprehensively covered in the literature, especially not from their own or their relatives' perspective. Better knowledge of the necessities of adolescent girls with MCN could ameliorate service provision for this vulnerable population.
