Abstract

This article describes a phenomenologic study designed to further an understanding concerning the concept of hope in a purposive sample of nine patients with cancer hospitalized for bone marrow transplantation. The strategies these patients use to sustain and foster hope are examined. Data collection consisted of a one-time semistructured interview using open-ended questions. A phenomenologic-hermeneutic approach to data analysis was used to identify major themes. The findings showed that participants used six strategies to foster their hope during preparation for BMT. feeling connected with God, affirming relationships, staying positive, anticipating survival, living in the present, and fostering ongoing accomplishment. Religious practices and family members were the most frequently identified sources of hope. The findings of this study provide a base for the improvement of nursing practice.
