Abstract

The aim of this study was to develop a comprehensive model of the symptom experience associated with the development of acute rejection after lung transplantation by integrating the findings from a theory-testing quantitative study that explored the physiologic aspects and a theory-generating qualitative study that explored the interpretive aspects. Findings from the multimethod studies were integrated using conceptual triangulation methods described by Foster (Adv Nurs Sci. 1997;20:1-12). The integrated model will guide the development of interventions to promote effective patterns of symptom recognition and reporting of acute rejection.
