dc.description.abstract This qualitative descriptive study explores a parent’s sense of meaning and understanding in relation to the parenting of their children who are living with type 1diabetes. A collective case study design was used and ten interviews were conducted with parents of children living with type 1 diabetes. Recruitment took place through the Winnipeg Diabetes Education and Resource for Children and Adolescents and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Nine categories are identified using qualitative content analysis and are interpreted according to an ecological framework (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). Data was triangulated through references to field notes and to the existing literature in this area. Implications regarding training and education for children and families have been discussed. en_US
