Résumé
Quality of life has been extensively discussed in acute and chronic illnesses. However a dynamic model grounded in the experience of patients in the course of transplantation has not been to our knowledge developed. In a qualitative longitudinal study, patients awaiting solid organ transplantation participated in semi-structured interviews: Exploring topics pre-selected on previous research literature review. Creative interview was privileged, open to themes patients would like to discuss at the different steps of the transplantation process. A qualitative thematic and reflexive analysis was performed, and a model of the dimensions constitutive of quality of life from the perspective of the patients was elaborated. Quality of life is not a stable construct in a long lasting illness-course, but evolves with illness constraints, treatments and outcomes. Dimensions constitutive of quality of life are defined, each of them containing different sub-categories depending on the organ related illness co-morbidities and the stage of illness-course.
