Marshall, Marie, Fleming, Elizabeth, Gillibrand, Warren P. and Carter, Bernie (2002) Adaptation and negotiation as an approach to care in paediatric diabetes specialist nursing practice: a critical review. Journal of Clinical Nursing, 11 (4). pp. 421-429. ISSN 09621067

• Psychosocial constructs have an important role in the development of self-management of chronic illness in children.

• Paediatric diabetes nurse specialists are pivotal in facilitating family-centred care based on personal models of child and family interventions
