Methodological framework of the study: the methodological approach was carried out under a qualitative paradigm and phenomenological design. The technique used was an in-depth interview. Scope of the study: Puerta de Hierro University Hospital, Majadahonda, Madrid.
Sampling strategy: Informant selection was started with an exploratory study, followed by two theoretical samplings which based on the compilation of the information obtained and the incipient theoretical analysis of such information. 22 interviews were carried out: 12 to informants who had undergone a heart transplant, aged between 27 and 70 years; and 10 family informants.
As conclusion it is important to point out that the dynamism established in the qualitative research process introduces the constant need to take a new approach to the initial sampling and to future samplings in order to achieve a discourse that embraces the comprehension of the studied phenomena.
