This portfolio thesis comprises of three parts: a systemic literature review, an empirical paper and the corresponding appendices. Part one is a literature review exploring the literature surrounding the development and maintenance of the therapeutic relationship between patients, families and health care professionals in type 1 diabetes. The results suggest a variety of factors which affect the development and maintenance of the therapeutic relationship primarily from the parents and young adult's perspectives. Part two is an empirical paper which investigated compassion fatigue and compassion satisfaction in professionals who work with children with type 1 diabetes. Using an online survey and quantitative methodology, the following information was collected: profession, years working in diabetes, caseload size, percentage of caseload classed as complex, percentage of caseload with HbA1c above 69 mmol/mol and personal stressors. General linear regression models were completed with all work related factors not statistically significant apart from personal stressors. Part three has the Appendices from part one and two.
