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.
