Abstract
Purpose: To assess who do chronically ill adolescents rely on in their entourage.
Methods: Data were drawn from the GenerationFRee study, a cross-sectional survey including 5149 youths aged 15-24 divided into 3 groups: healthy controls (HC; N=4529), chronically ill without limitations (CI; N=517) and chronically ill with limitations (CIWL; N=103). Groups were compared on perceived health status, socio-demographic variables and whether they could rely a lot on their father, their mother, their girl/boyfriend, their best friend or their health professional in case of difficulty. All variables significant at the bivariate level were included in a multinomial logistic regression using HC as the reference category. Results are given as Relative Risk Ratios (RRR) with 95% CI.
