Research Meets Life: Becoming the Parent of a Child with Life-Threatening Food Allergies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Parents of children with life-threatening food allergies are challenged in the day-to-day management of their child's diagnosis. Social norms would suggest the parenting role is one that would offer a child protection from physical, emotional, and social harm.  However, once a child is diagnosed with FIA, parental competency is often severely challenged, calling into question the parents' ability to succeed in the parenting role. Parenting a child with life-threatening food allergies is a learned role that requires expanding existing parental competency and developing new skills to manage newly identified, life-threatening needs. Through extensive interviews, parents shared with our presenter their day-to-day management of their child's needs. Providing the foundation of Broome's doctoral dissertation, this session will share research findings and provide practical guidance for parents and caregivers.
