The purpose of this pilot study, part of a larger cross-sectional triangulated study, was to explore older adults' perceptions of perceived enactment of autonomy (PEA). The self-care model from Modeling and Role-Modeling nursing theory (Erickson, Tomlin, & Swain, 1988) provided the theoretical framework for the study. Within the self-care model, PEA represents the potential for self-care action. It is a state of sensing and recognizing the ability to freely choose behaviors and courses of action on one's own behalf and in accordance with one's own needs and goals. This means choosing to act to meet needs for both dependence and independence either separately or simultaneously (Hertz, 1991, p. 15). PEA has three attributes: voluntariness, individuality, and self-direction. A semi-structured interview guide was used to collect data from four randomly selected volunteer participants who lived in a congregate housing unit in a small urban area of northern Illinois. Three women and one man over the age of 65 participated. After data collection with written self-reports, the 45-minute interview was conducted in a private area by one of two data collectors. Questions focused upon perceptions regarding each of the PEA attributes. Data will be analyzed using traditional thematic analysis (Miles & Huberman, 1994). The findings will be used to augment quantitative findings. Implications for future research, theory development, and nursing practice will be delineated.
