RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: This study used a combination of across-case, thematic analysis and within-case, narrative analysis to develop a typology of stories for family caregivers. Both researchers and clinicians can benefit from interpretive methods that offer access s into the processes and products of making meaning though stories. It is often easier to see the possibilities for reinterpretation from outside a story than from within it. It may be that nurses will also be uniquely able to help clients who are in the process of "getting the story straight" to find new, more sustaining meanings and even to live more happily ever after.
