Using focus groups in rehabilitation nursing


, : Using focus groups in rehabilitation nursing. Rehabilitation Nursing 24(5): 212-215

The purpose of this paper is to describe the research method of focus groups and give an example of how it could be used to advance rehabilitation nursing in the area of poststroke adaptation or recovery. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in elderly Americans. Although much is known about the physical effects and treatments of stroke, little has been published on the adaptive behaviors or recovery process of stroke survivors. The focus-group technique can provide an "insider's" view of the adaptive behaviors of stroke survivors and is a cost-effective way to generate rich qualitative data to guide nursing practice.
