Hope-inspiring strategies of the critically ill.


Sixty persons who had been critically ill were studied to determine what mechanisms they used to maintain or increase their hope while confronting a life-threatening event. Patients were interviewed 2 to 4 days after discharge from a critical care unit. Responses to the interviews were categorized into nine hope-inspiring themes. The findings provide direction for developing strategies to inspire hope in the critically ill.
