Abstract:
Primary Caregivers' Lived Experiences of Caring for Relatives Who Underwent Electroconvulsive Therapy
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2011
Author:Flaviano, Maureen T.
P.I. Institution Name:University of Santo Tomas
Title:Student Nurse
[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
Meaning of the lived experiences of the primary caregivers was one of the problems answered in this descriptive phenomenological study. The researchers gained insight on the significant experiences of the study participants relevant to the use of electroconvulsive therapy and gained awareness of the coping mechanism/s utilized by the primary caregivers in order to resolve and/or overcome the effects produced by this treatment.
Methods:  
The researchers came across five (5) study participants that were interviewed separately, which were then divided into two interview teams. A follow-up telephone call was made to ensure the validity of the data collected from the interview process. The researchers utilized the Collaizi's method of data analysis to grasp the overall understanding, beliefs and attitudes of the participants.
Results: 
As the essences came into view, the researchers explained the phenomenon extensively. The resulting paradigm was similar to the Metamorphosis of an adult butterfly, with a corresponding diagram of  "The Butterfly Phenomenon of Metamorphosis." The four divisions of the wings of a butterfly correspond to the four essences, Forecasting positive results, Inevitable sympathy, Realization of the situation and Encumbrance and coping, that the primary caregivers experienced while caring for a relative who underwent ECT.


Conclusion: 
The primary caregivers were fixed on the fact that ECT will restore their relatives to their normal state. And though they experienced personal burdens financially, on matters of their own family and in the process of prioritizing their own lives over their relative, they did not make it a hindrance to be able to serve and help their relative. They took the courage to endure, accept and support their relative in the best ways they can. The primary caregivers did and still do what they can, to take care of their relatives who underwent ECT against all odds.
