This paper describes the process and outcomes of a project to learn about qualitative research methods.
A small study of family participation in decision-making was conducted with 7 family members who were interviewed after an inter-unit patient transfer.
The data analysis used strategies derived from grounded theory, family life-cycle framework and storytelling.
The interviews indicated respondents'concerns about the patient, their efforts to balance their lives during a time of disarray and their sorting through crises in their lives (working through'). Working through'discourse has identifiable features, including :
linking the past, present and future ;
rhetorical questions ;
Clinicians should encourage the'working through'process by family during the hospitalization of a family member.
