Abstract:
Purpose: To describe the utilization of Gorden's (1987) technique in interviewing patients post acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in gaining understanding of the experience from onset of symptoms to rehabilitation. Background: Gorden's (1987) interview method was selected to understand patient's experiences with an acute myocardial infarctions. The method allows the researcher to capture a comprehensive understanding of the AMI. The approach involves three kinds of activity: feeling (empathy), doing (participation), and thinking (observation). Methods (Design, Participants, Setting, Data Collection, Analytic approach): Gorden's interview method includes both probing questions and directed questions to meet the objectives of the interview. The interview is recorded and transcribed. Post interviews notes are taken. Several in-depth interviews on conducted with the same participant. The patient's feelings, thinking and doing are elicited through focused questions about the AMI experience. The method involves understanding the social context of the interview, facilitating communication techniques, selecting appropriate respondents, and location of interview. Four to six participants will be recruited. Results: The responses will be analyzed using phases in the AMI experience from onset, entry to the emergency system, critical care, telemetry and rehabilitation. Helpful experiences and problematic experiences during the illness experience will also be analyzed. Conclusions and Implications: This method allows the nurse to understand the patients experience with an AMI greater depth. It analyzes not only the general experience but the range of feelings, thoughts and actions during the illness experience.
