Description

The purpose of this study is to identify coordinating as a specific process of engagement that families utilize when managing the chronic illness experiencing. Findings of this study will contribute to understanding the rural family process of coordinating the processes used to manage the chronic illness experience. Qualitative grounded theory methodology was used to address the research problem of: How do families coordinate as they engage within the chronic illness experience? The facilitating conditions of coordinating care strategies to ease the stress of families includes communication, organization, schedules, and routines. The constraining conditions include busyness, lack of communication, lack of organization, and lack of a schedule. Nursing actions to coordinate family caring strategies throughout the chronic illness experience to ease the stress of families include facilitating creation of routines and schedules, educating families on effective coping techniques, facilitating effective communication between family members, and guiding therapeutic communication in a safe calming environment. The implementation of these nursing actions allows nurses to provide families with the necessary tools to coordinate during the chronic illness experience.
