My Child has Been Diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis, what now?
Being diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis or JIA is very difficult for children, teenagers and their parents.
What? Why? Children in Hospital filmed the rheumatology nurse explaining to a recently diagnosed teenager what this means and answering his questions. We also spoke to a mum of a girl diagnosed at 18 months about what has helped her accept the diagnosis.
The video was made in collaboration with the charity SNAC (Scottish Network for Arthritis in Children).
