Dr. Veronica Lambert, School of Nursing and Human Sciences, Dublin City University, is conducting a study on parent-adolescent communication and negotiation of self-management responsibilities for adolescents’ with type 1 diabetes (TID). The Health Research Board of Ireland is funding this 3-year project which began in May 2016. The project involves five stages including, systematic reviews, observational fieldwork, interviews and completion of digital diaries, a cross-sectional survey and a theoretical modelling process to design a healthcare intervention to support family communication around shared self-care responsibilities for childhood TID. This builds on Dr Lambert’s research in the field of family communication processes for children living with chronic health care needs.
