Illness trajectories and chronic illness. Illness trajectory is central to Strauss’ thought. It’s a grounded concept using to reach aspects of the chronic illness requiring above all the under-standing of its form and duration. Moreover, it’s a concept through which the researcher anal-yses the chronic illness management taking into account three lines of work: the biographical work, the daily life work and the illness work. The three lines of work are carried out, accord-ing by Strauss, by all the care actors and by patients in a complex articulation of mutual expec-tations and of identification of who-when-why does what. The article considers the application of this concept at the paediatric field where it’s believed that it could open up new and interesting exploration plans; moreover, the article applies the concept to the analysis of national programmatic documents related to the long-term care, such as the 2016 National Chronicity Plan, thus revealing the modernity and the analytical potential-ities of Strauss’ thought.
Keywords: Illness Trajectories; Chronic Illness; Paediatric field; Long-term care; Household; Grounded Theory.
