Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to revise and expand the Managing Unpredictability Scale (MUS). The sample consisted of 225 heart transplant patients, 73.7% of the total in the primary study. An exploratory design was used to content analyze the qualitative data obtained from one open ended statement on the last page of the booklet from the primary study, "Predictors of Quality of Life in Heart Transplantation". Results substantiated the five original dimensions from the Managing Unpredictability Scale. The five dimensions are: Information Seeking, Setting Limits, Reliance on Selected Physicians, Containing Investment, and Markers. A sixth dimension, Creating Challenges, was generated.
