The aim of this study was to explore the perceived impact of disease-related foot problems and foot care in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) from the perspectives of patients, parents, pediatric rheumatologists, and health professionals. Qualitative outcomes were participants' perceptions elicited using semistructured interviews (telephone or face-to-face) and focus groups using an interpretative phenomenological approach. A data-driven inductive approach to coding and theme development was adopted for transcript analysis.
