Sammanfattning (abstract):
This article describes a small-scale study of children's experiences of using a tablet computer with pre-installed apps designed to support individuals with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes. A total of 15 children (seven boys and eight girls), aged from 6.5 to 16, chose to use a tablet during their stay in hospital, and were then interviewed by telephone within two weeks after discharge. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis, and subcategories were abstracted to categories. The results consisted of three categories and seven subcategories. The children found it helpful to use a range of different styles of learning about diabetes. A combination of educational tools and learning strategies, including conversations with nurses who are diabetes specialists, and the use of tablet-based apps, helps to support newly diagnosed children's learning about type 1 diabetes and its management.
