  • Using an inductive reasoning process, I wanted to develop a theory about caregiving style that was grounded in the data
  • End goal is theory of style. What is a style? What are the essential ingredients for something to be a style? Pattern over time, but what else? Used the literature to define style = essential elements. Used these elements as a hierarchy for codes.
  • If I looked at my participants as individuals (rather than clumping the data together as a whole) I saw there were three possible conditions. BTW, looking at things individually rather than as a block of data is part of what researchers mean when they say they are considering the context (contextualizing, placing in context).How did the cg talk about taking care of themselves? I asked specifically what they did to recharge their batteries and some had strategies and some didn’t …BTW, if I had not asked the batteries question, what would have been the effect on the trustworthiness of my analysis?
  • Facilitative - Seeks to maintain identity of CR (i.e., clothing, former roles)Self-image tied to “good caregiving”Directive-Priority is physical health of CRElaborate regimes of medication, nutrition, or use of supplementsAppearances important (keeps house clean, worries about being embarrassed)
  • Facilitating- also tries to keep care recipient active

    5. 5. Data• Qualitative • Long interview (250+ total hours) • Videotapes (33+ total hours)• Quantitative • Sociodemographics • Measures of well-being
    6. 6. Qualitative Analytic ApproachThree iterative tasks Coding Describe what is going on Categories Identify larger “parts” Theme Develop a theory of caregiving style
    7. 7. Getting from Codes to CategoriesCoding – unlinked descriptions of dataCategories – arrange codes as hierarchies Hierarchies of what?
    8. 8. BeliefsMeanings Actions Style
    9. 9. Categories: Elements of StyleBeliefs  What is …?Meanings  The role signifies …?Actions  Caregiving gets done by …?
    10. 10. Action: Taking Care of SelfLooking at data as a whole, caregivers take care of self by Reducing demands of role Doing something important Getting healthy Staying connected

    22. 22. Caveats• Styles are a guide, not a prescription• Theory - Requires further testing
