Title:
Living with renal failure
Abstract:
Living with renal failure
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:1992
Conference Date:August 6 - 8, 1992
Author:Rittman, Maude, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Gainesville VA Medical Center
Title:Associate Chief Nursing Service Research
The purpose of this phenomenological study was to discover and

describe common meanings embedded in the experience of living with

chronic renal failure in order to discover new possibilities for

treatment programs in supporting and promoting adaptation to this

chronic illness. Within the framework of Heideggerian

phenomenology, a hermeneutic analysis revealed three themes and one

constitutive pattern. Three themes will be described including:

taking on a new understanding of Being, maintaining hope, and

dwelling in dialysis. The constitutive pattern, Control: The

Meaning of Technology, will also be described. The findings

provide an understanding of living with renal failure that argues

against the traditional view of non-compliant behaviors and makes

visible the meaning of technology in the lives of renal patients.

Implications for nursing practice in hemodialysis units will be

discussed.
