Abstract:
Understanding Adaptation to Spinal Cord Injury: a Qualitative Study
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2003

Purpose: This poster will present the methods and preliminary findings of a qualitative study currently in the data collection stage. The purpose of this study is to understand the process of adaptation to spinal cord injury (SCI) as described by adults with paraplegia. Methods: The sample will consist of twenty participants over the age of eighteen who have sustained a traumatic spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia. Participants will be selected utilizing a sampling frame to obtain a sample that is closely representative of the current national population of persons with SCI. Data will be gathered using a single, audio taped interview which will be guided by an interview schedule. Questions will be open-ended attempting to elicit responses relative to the participants’ experiences and factors affecting their adaptation following SCI. Analysis: The interviews will be transcribed verbatim and subsequently analyzed using QSR Nud*ist (version 6) software for qualitative data analysis. Data analysis will consist of content analysis and will be ongoing throughout the data collection period. Identified themes, linkages, and interrelationships between and within categories will be entered into a journal as theoretical memos and tasks for further exploration and analysis will be identified. Relevance: The goal will be to understand the process of adaptation to spinal cord injury and, if possible, create a diagrammatic model of adaptation to SCI which will depict all data categories and interrelationships. This research should enable nurses to identify key points of intervention in an effort to assist persons with SCI to a more positive adaptive response. AN: MN030049
