Adults and elderly over the age of 30 years are found to be at an increased risk of Cardio-Vascular Diseases (CVD) which are in turn related to NIDDM and obesity. Obesity is a chronic disease and is becoming a public health issue, with high body-mass index (BMI) >30 leading to NIDDM and CVD.
A qualitative method appears to be fit for this initial study as it is intended to be descriptive, explanatory and discovery-oriented. The sampling would be purposive and include patients who had been discharged after knee arthroscopy surgery within six months and are at their residences in a naturalistic setting.
