Title:
A Focus Group Study to Determine the Needs of Chronic Angina Patients
Abstract:
A Focus Group Study to Determine the Needs of Chronic Angina Patients
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:McGillion, Michael
Chronic stable angina pectoris is a distressing clinical pain syndrome that affects over one third of Canadians living with heart disease (IHD) each year. Despite numerous recent developments in heart disease prevention and intervention, chronic angina is a major health problem that negatively impacts quality of life, general health status, psychosocial well being and role functioning among individuals with IHD. Traditional cardiovascular secondary prevention programs in Canada are focused on post-acute MI rehabilitation and do not meet the long-term health care needs of chronic angina patients. The purpose of this study is to obtain more information about the needs of chronic angina patients and to determine the content areas to be included in a future program for the treatment of chronic angina. Semi-structured focus group interviews will be used to ask patients and clinicians questions about the common day-to-day problems that chronic angina patients have in relation to their angina pain and what should be included in a treatment program intended to improve daily pain management skills and quality of life. Four 11/2 hour focus groups will be conducted. These sessions will be audio taped and the transcribed qualitative data will be grouped into themes. The background, planning, preliminary results and significance of this focus groups study will be discussed.
