Abstract [en]

Introduction: Several studies have shown that patients with chronic renal failure have a reduced physical exercise capacity compared to the expected norm. In a previous study, we described and analysed the various ways in which patients with chronic renal failure experienced their physical/functional capacity and their daily life situation. It became evident that the patients experienced their physical capacity as limiting in their daily life. Coping has been proposed as an important mediating factor with regard to adaptation to illness. In the present study, our aim was to describe and analyse the qualitatively different coping strategies used by these patients to be able to perform physical activities in their daily life. Methods: Semi-structured interviews were used to collect data, which were then analysed according to a phenomenographic approach. Results: Three overarching coping strategies were discerned and categorized through the analysis, scheduling, adjusting pace and avoiding. The strategies were problem-focused, and the patients used active-, avoidant- and social-support coping strategies. Conclusions: As there is a relationship between coping and health, knowledge of the various coping strategies is important with regard to the establishment and implementation of appropriate rehabilitation interventions for patients with chronic renal failure.
