The trajectory framework developed by Strauss and associates provides a conceptual basis for developing a nursing model that gives direction for practice, teaching, and research in the area of chronic illness. This paper presents an overview of the trajectory framework and shows how it can be used to generate such a nursing model.

... Directed content analysis technique with deductive coding will be used [51]. The developed codes will represent each of the relevant constructs with additional codes developed from themes aris- ing from the data, using the principles of grounded theory [52]. Interview transcripts will be analyzed with Atlas.ti ...
... To analyze wildlife value orientation data, the first author coded the relevant responses for each interview without predetermined categories (i.e., inductive in vivo coding), with attention given to repeated codes (Levy, Hollan, & Bernard, 1998), and then used existing studies on wildlife value orientations as guides for creating and grouping codes into axial categories (i.e., deductive coding; Strauss & Corbin, 1998). Research objectives were then used to integrate, refine, and organize axial codes into broader theoretical categories, or selective codes (Table S3). ...
... Yet the symptoms would revert quickly and, hence, a stable treatment regimen (e. g., pain self-management) appears desirable. In all three examples, the trajectory phase is a better indicator of the true progression of the disease and, therefore, the guidelines from the trajectory framework (Corbin and Strauss 1991) advise basing treatment decisions on the trajectory phase (rather than on symptoms). Note that the above examples draw upon the complete course and thus benefit from post-hoc knowledge, whereas, in practice, the course would only be known partially. ...
