As medical technologies extend the life span of Americans, an unexpected result has been the emergence of long-term chronic disease. A major challenge to living with chronic illness is learning to cope with the life changes it creates. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a chronic illness that afflicts more than 14 million Americans. The theoretical framework for this study is the Herth Central Core-coping Process Nursing Model (CPNM). A descriptive correlational study design is being used to determine the relationship between hope and coping strategies in end-stage COPD patients recruited from a community-based nurse case management practice in an upper Midwestern state. The relationship of the independent variables of age, gender, religion, income and social support on hope and coping strategies is also being investigated. A convenience sampling strategy has yielded 21 end-stage COPD patients for this study. Participants completed three surveys: a demographic survey, the Ways of Coping Questionnaire, and the Herth Hope Index. Statistical analysis of raw scores is now underway (12/00) and will include measures of central tendency and dispersion, as well as, Pearson coefficient and Mann-Whitney correlational tests. The poster presentation will include a summary of the results and implications of this research.
