This thesis portfolio is comprised of three distinct sections: a narrative synthesis of qualitative research findings, an empirical study and the appendices. Systematic literature review: Narrative synthesis A qualitative review of studies examining the parental experiences of having a child with type 1 diabetes. This topic was chosen for its significant links to the empirical project, and to provide insight into the lived experiences of parents supporting children to live with a chronic health condition. This is of particular relevance for professionals supporting such families. Three superordinate themes were derived from nine articles. The Empirical Project An empirical study examining the experiences and opinions of children with type 1 diabetes using insulin pumps. Six children were interviewed and the data was analysed using the qualitative framework, Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). Three superordinate themes were emerged from the interviews, and the implications of such are discussed. Appendices The appendices support both the narrative synthesis and the empirical project. There is an accompanying reflective statement commenting upon the research process.
