Methods: Four semistructured in-depth face-to-face interviews were con-ducted with adults admitted to a public hospital in southeast Queensland,Australia, for treatment of AUD. The interpretive phenomenological anal-ysis (IPA) framework was used to guide the study design and data analysis. Results: The interrelated themes of social stigmatization, corrupted knowl-edge, vulnerability and burden, and locus of control were found to sit within the broad drivers of fear of food and psychological pain. Fear of food is the vehicle of blame for an unknown etiology of diverticulitis, resulting in the corruption of knowledge by all stakeholders, including the patient, family members, friends, and health professionals. The unnec-essary dietary restrictions imposed clinically and by the patients themselves contribute to a loss of culture, a high internal locus of control, and social stigmatization. As a result, patients expressed vulnerability and a sense of burden on the hospital staff, family members, and friends, leading to a broad ongoing experience of psychological pain.
Conclusion: The ﬁndings indicate that current inpatient dietary manage-ment of AUD is associated with long-term psychological pain in pa-tients, with fear of food as the trigger for this experience. This study highlights that food has a profound effect on patients’ emotional, cul-tural, and social values and signiﬁes the importance of avoiding unnec-essary dietary restriction for patients with AUD. The ﬁndings provide an opportunity to improve patient care by focusing on reducing fear and ad-dressing concerns.
