This study entitled, “Uncertainty and Chronic Hepatitis C in the Baby boomer Population: A Cross-Sectional, Correlational Predictive Study Testing Mishel’s Uncertainty In Illness Theory” is being conducted by Humberto Reinoso, MSN, ARNP-BC, a doctoral student at Barry University.
The purpose of the study is to test Mishel’s Theory of Uncertainty in Illness among baby boomers with chronic hepatitis C. The study will focus on what influences predictor variables prescribed by the model have on the individual’s perception of uncertainty. Length of diagnosis of these individuals as well as prior treatment attempts will be explored along with their relationship to uncertainty.
