Abstract:
Theory-based Research Process for the Study of Caregiving in Families
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society

Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to explore the challenges
and opportunities of using theory to guide and analyze a qualitative
research study titled Caring-Web: Web-based Support for Rural Stroke
Caregivers.
Theoretical Framework: FriedemannÆs framework of systemic organization
provides the conceptual basis for this study.
Research Design: The focus of this study was the scientific exploration of
an interactive web-based intervention for support and education of
caregivers of individuals with a stroke. All narrative data exchanged
online between the caregivers and the nurse specialist as well as
individual mailings to the nurse constituted the primary documents for
analysis. Additional narrative data from follow-up phone interviews
provided further information as to the caregiver's problems, solutions and
successes. The theory provided initial probes and focus for the research
design. The development of a coding rubric began with theory domains. The
development of the coding rubric included the theorist, researchers and
nurse specialist who together applied the rubric to the data and refined
the coding rubric.
Context: As a Telehealth intervention with follow up phone interviews, the
context of this research is primarily in cyberspace.
Analysis of research or practice findings: The process of analysis
included a triangulation of the researchers, the theorist and the nurse
specialist participant. This provided a means of coding rubric development
and content analysis, which was coherent with the theory and the actual
experience. The major themes identified in this study were 1) changing
roles and solving problems [system change and maintenance in Friedeman's
terms], 2) seeing others' success or failure as own [individuation], 3)
pulling together and feeling connected [coherence], 4) being spiritual
[spirituality], and 5) balancing successes/problems [congruence].
Implication for nursing: This research process helped to refine an
understanding of FriedemannÆs theoretical concepts, delineate caregiversÆ
experiences in dealing with stroke, and affirm a need for family theory
research.
