A Health Promotion Model for Facilitation of Self-Care of Women in Midlife to Support Them in the Attainment of Wholeness
Abstract:
A Health Promotion Model for Facilitation of Self-Care of Women in Midlife to Support Them in the Attainment of Wholeness
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Lester, Barbara A., PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Northwest Nazarene University
Title:Professor
Objective:  The purpose of this study is to explore how women undergoing midlife transition experienced this period of change, and to develop a model for support of women during midlife transition. Design:  A qualitative, theory generative design gathered data from phenomenological interviews with women who had experienced midlife transition. Participants:  Nine women from diverse backgrounds were recruited in the Boise/ Nampa area, in Idaho who met the inclusion criteria. Data Analysis: Tesch?s analysis was employed to identify themes that emerged from interviews with women in midlife transition. Results: Two major themes were identified: how the women experienced midlife and how they managed the transition during midlife. The women all viewed midlife as a normal transition but the way in which they managed the experience was diverse. Conclusions: The data supported the premise that menopause is a normal process for women in the USA. How the process was experienced and managed was unique to each women and this presents challenges for health professional as they support women in this period of transition. Keywords: Change, self-care, normal transition.
