Aim: This study aimed to explore the experiences of young people receiving treatment for and living with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). More specifically, it explored their experience of long term treatment, what this told us about treatment adherence and their experience of being an adolescent with a chronic illness. Conclusion: The findings are discussed in relation to the current literature on JIA, chronic illness and treatment adherence. The study highlighted that even those apparently managing their treatment may still be experiencing difficulties. The results have implications for clinical services in developing existing provision of support and several avenues for future research were identified.
