Abstract:
Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disease caused by abnormal hemoglobin. Death due to sickle cell disease usually occurs as a result of a sickle cell crisis. The prevention of sickling crises increases life expectancy. Today more persons with sickle cell disease are living to the age of 40 years and older. Little information exits on the characterizing impact of this disease on the lives of persons 40 years and older, the management modalities utilized to help them to achieve longevity, and the lived experiences of the person living with sickle cell disease. Therefore, the purpose of this phenomenological study is to describe the lived experiences of the person with sickle cell disease. The target sample size will be 40 year old and older volunteer persons with sickle cell disease. The target sample size will be considered adequate when the content of the lived experiences become redundant in description. Data obtained will be by interview and tape recording. The qualitative method, phenomenology, will be utilized for collection of data for this study. The phenomenology method is a means to describe the lived experiences of a selected population, in other words, the experience from the unique perspective of each individual. There will be three questions to guide the interview process of data collection. The questions are: 1) describe the preventive medical care activities you feel helped you to reach your age, 2) describe the self-care activities you feel helped you to reach your age, and 3) describe your thoughts, decisions, and intended activities towards prevention and management of a crisis. Data obtained from the interview will be transcribed verbatim for each client. Parse's approach to phenomenological analysis will be used. Parse's analysis process is extraction synthesis, which will include the following steps: 1) reading all transcriptions, 2) extracting significant statements that pertain to the phenomenon, 3) identification of the themes common to all participants and 4) formulating the common activities of prevention of all the subjects. Analysis is in progress.
