Adolescents’ experience of responsibility for their self-care in diabetes type 1 : a literature-based study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: The number of adolescents with type one diabetes in Sweden is a growing concern. A difficult time for adolescents is when the responsibility of managing diabetes shifts from the parents to the child. The shift in responsibility demands a higher standard from the adolescents in their discipline towards their selfcare. This demand causes different responses in the adolescentswho tackle the challenge differently and experience different challenges along the way to independence and a successful self-care of their diabetes. It is therefore of the upmost importance that nurses reads into the situations to understand these challenges to the best of their ability, so that they can provide the adolescents with the best guidance possible.

Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate adolescents’ experience of responsibility for their self-care in diabetes type 1.

Method: The method were to contribute to evidence-based nursing based on analysis of qualitative research. Eleven scientific articles were analyzed using Friberg’ s five step model for analysing qualitative articles.

Results: The results of the analysis are presented in three themes; “Incorporating diabetes into daily routine”, “When family and friends are involved” and “Diabetes; a burden”.

Conclusion: Nurses who better understand the challenges that the adolescents are facing are more likely to be able to successfully guide adolescents on their path to a successful and independent self-care of their diabetes type one.
