This paper will specifically consider one of the major findings of a wider study (previously reported in Roddis, Holloway, Bond and Galvin1), concerning how patients acquired knowledge and information about their condition before being formally diagnosed. The overall purpose of this research was to explore and explain how people make sense of long-term health conditions. Through the use of both purposive and theoretical sampling within a grounded theory design, experiences of individuals with thrombophilia and asthma were explored.
