Despite the increasing number of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and greater impact of chronic dyspnea, little is known about personal experience in chronic dyspnea management. The purposes of this study were to explain the process of chronic dyspnea management and to identify the factors influencing the process of chronic dyspnea management of Thai adults with COPD who live in Chonburi Province in the Eastern region of Thailand. The aim of this study was to develop a substantive theory explaining the process of chronic dyspnea management of Thai adults with COPD. A grounded theory study was conducted with 31 COPD participants with chronic dyspnea, which were recruited from Chonburi Regional Hospital. Indepth-interveiws, observations, and review of health records were the strategies used in data collection and constant comparative method was used for data analysis. “Becoming an expert” was the social psychological process that emerged from the data. The process of becoming an expert in chronic dyspnea self-management composes of four sequential stages; novice, developing competency in self-management, developing to be an expert, and being an expert, which evolves over time. Self-learning and self-management were the important actions or interactive strategies of this process and were influenced by two major factors: personal factors, and contextual factors. This process is viewed as the developmental process evolving from novice to expert in chronic dyspnea self-management. This resulted in competence in chronic dyspnea self-management, confidence in chronic dyspnea self-management, balanced reliant on self and others, and living as normal as possible. These findings can be used as the basis for information to nurses and other health care providers. As well, it can aid policy makers to further develop nursing practice, health care policy making, and for future research in order to help people with COPD to become experts in illness self-management.
