Focal points: the aim of this abstract is to describe the psychosocial context of medicine-taking for young people living with arthritis; family partnerships, relationships with peers, and the demands of school life all impact significantly on the medicine-taking practices of young people;to be able to provide meaningful advice and services for young people, pharmacists must consider the psychosocial contextual factors in young people's lives that influence medicine-taking; better communication with the local rheumatology team, and an understanding of their prescribing practice, would equip pharmacists to support young people with JIA.
