Children with urinary tract and bowel malformation often realize that they do not have the same body and genital appearance as their schoolmates. This sensitive matter affects their integrity, a private problem that not is discussed in public. It is a lack of prevention program, particularly developed in cooperation with the children. The goal with the present project was to get tools for support in daily live. The aim of the study was together with the children, family, hospital staff and researcher; develop a web-based support program to be used in home setting. The study was conducted between 2011and2015. A participatory design was employed following the approach in person centred care with a partnership between 22 children 3-7 years old, their families and the research group of 8 persons. The program was built on stories about two children, their actions in different situations and with images to support the stories. Open conversations were used for the data collection and data were analysed using qualitative content analysis. Steps of 8 themes were formed from the developing of the web-based program, which offered a user-friendly support in daily life for the children with long-term illnesses and family.
