- This study explores and describes experiences of chronic liver disease from the patient's perspective.
No qualitative research studies appear to have examined the experiences of these patients.
In-depth focused interviews and grounded theory data collection and data analysis methods were used.
A two-stage theoretical framework (becoming ill, and not living) of the experience of transcending chronic liver disease is presented. - Sociological and psychological literature on common sense models of health and illness are briefly reviewed.
Several suggestions for further research are made.
The way in which this qualitative research study is leading to a quantitative and qualitative appraisal of the psychological adjustment in end-stage chronic liver disease patients is outlined.
