Abstract
Purpose
This study was conducted to examine utilization of alternative therapies and identify factors related to decisions by patients with strokes to use alternative therapies.
Methods
This study used methodological triangulation. Decision factors related to alternative therapies were described based on qualitative data collected from in-depth interviews with 18 patients. These factors were tested statistically using quantitative data collected from a structured questionnaire and interviews involving 150 patients.
Results
Just over sixty percent (61.3%) of patients had used alternative therapies and 45.0% were still using alternative therapies. Decision criteria related to the use of alternative therapy were rehabilitation treatment, social group influence related to alternative therapy, confidence in alternative therapy, ability to maintain secrecy from doctor about alternative therapies, doctor's approval, and seeking other alternative therapies. In the alternative therapy group, these variables with the exception of secrecy about alternative therapies were statistically different from those of the hospital treatment only group.
Conclusion
The results from this study can help nurse understand the education needs of patients with strokes regarding using alternative therapies, and hence aid in the development of educational strategies for patients who have had a stroke.
