[Research Presentation] Significance: Despair in women causes enormous suffering and disability. Nurses and other health care providers have the opportunity to positively impact these women through their many and varied interpersonal health care contacts. In order for us to properly care for women in despair, it is imperative to deepen our understandings of this phenomenon. Statement of Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe the experience of women in despair. Design: Existential phenomenology. Research Question: The research question is "What is the lived experience of women in despair?" Methods: This study, approved by the universityÆs IRB, is a secondary analysis of existing data from an original study of a unitary conceptualization of women in despair. Data consists of 14 individual interviews with adult women living in the community. In this secondary analysis, interview transcripts are being thoroughly read and analyzed, focusing on the phenomenological experience of despair. The question we are asking of the texts is, "What is the experience of despair?" Data analysis is being conducted using the systematic data analysis method described by Thomas and Pollio (2002), facilitated by ATLAS.ti 5.0, a qualitative data analysis software package. Findings and Discussion: Data is currently being analyzed. This study will be completed by the conference presentation date. Findings and implications will be reported.á
