Abstract

This study explored parents' experience and needs where one parent has T1D and their child is diagnosed with T1D to understand their acceptance, adaption, and management of their child's condition. In this qualitative study, ten parents were interviewed and data were analysed using thematic analysis. Five themes were identified: - T1D child; T1D Parent; Acquisition of knowledge; Challenges living with T1D; and, Our new life. Findings highlight the importance of knowledge and support to empower parents to be positive role models and to manage challenges faced with having multiple family members with T1D.
