Abstract

Objective: To map in scientific literature studies that lead to the identification of factors that influence the experience of hope in parents of children with chronic illness. Methods: A scoping review literature review was carried out, following the methodology proposed by the Joanna Briggs Institute in the PubMed, CINHAL Plus with Full text and MEDLINE Plus with Full text databases, in the chronological interval between 2009 and 2019, to respond to the question: what are the factors that influence the experience of hope in parents of children with chronic illness? Results: After applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, ten studies were selected, from which it appeared that hope is a positive and motivating internal resource and that it is oriented towards the present and the future. There are factors that promote hope, such as the focus on positives, faith/religion and social support; and factors that threaten parental hope, such as physical and emotional exhaustion, perceived negativity on the part of others, fear and uncertainty. Conclusion: Parental hope is influenced by children's health status, effectiveness of treatments and psychosocial context, playing a significant role in adapting parents to children's health condition.
