This thesis presents a phenomenological exploration of the meanings
and experiences of home infusion therapy from the consumer
perspective. Using a phenomenological research methods (as
described by van Manen 1990), the study draws on the stories of five
people who are recipients of home infusion therapy. Through semi
structured interviews the participants in this study describe what this
experience has been like. A discussion of themes has been structured
according to the everyday experiences of home infusion. The
participants describe a process that includes: 'the journey home' and
'having a life'. The impetus of this work is to heighten nurse's
understandings and awareness of home infusion therapy from the
consumer perspective.
