Abstract

Participants cited knowledge deficits regarding CVI among nonspecialized health care providers and the discomfort, pain, and inconvenience of suffering from CVI as contributors to poor health-related quality of life. Participants described family, friends, and caregiver relationships as being especially important in helping them cope with the disease process.
