Chronically ill but still adolescent
Surís J. C.
Most children with chronic conditions survive to, at least, age twenty. This increased survival means that primary care providers will have to deal with chronically ill adolescents. In this paper, we review the existing literature and we analyze whether or not there are differences with their healthy peers regarding their pubertal development, family structure and functioning, friends, academic achievement, and risky behaviors, using a non-categorical approach.
