Abstract:
According to the World Health Organization (2006), food allergies affect up to 6% of children and represent an important public health issue. Food allergies for a child can lead to major social, psychological and financial repercussions for the family (Avery, King & Hourihane, 2003; Bollinger and al., 2006; Sicherer, Noone, & Munoz-Furlong, 2001). However, families say they feel inadequately supported by health professionals and nurses who are often ill-equipped to offer them support (Butler, Mandell, 2002; Weiss and al., 2004). A collaborative care approach is being recommended, especially in the area of young people's health (Gottlieb & Feeley, 2007; MELS, 2005). The various players concerned with young people's health are encouraged to work together around common objectives in a global and concerted way. Our research aims at elaborating care strategies involving families whose teenager suffers from potentially fatal food allergies by using a collaborative nurse-family approach. This study uses qualitative approach supporting the collaboration and the evaluation of the fourth generation of Guba and Lincoln (1989). This approach of participatory-action research allows for the various points of view of those concerned by care strategies to be considered and also searching for the emergence of new and more complete perspectives useful to the group. With regards to research in nursing, this methodology offers an interesting approach allowing to intertwine research and practice, thus improving the practice of nursing (Goudreau, Duhamel, & Beaudoin, 1999; Sylvain, 2008).
