Purposes: To identify the support needs of rural women with chronic illness; describe spousal challenges in providing support to these women; and suggest strategies health care providers can use to assist spouses in supporting their wives. Background:  The support of family members, especially that of significant others, has the potential to significantly enhance the women's ability to manage and adjust to their chronic illnesses. Description:  The Women to Women project is a computer intervention that provides health information and a virtual support group to rural middle-aged women with chronic illness. The messages posted in the online forum were assessed to determine spousal support needs. Outcomes: Rural women faced with the challenges of chronic illness need assistance in gathering accurate health information, communicating effectively, and helping their spouses understand what they are going through in order to better self-manage. Implications: Providing accurate information regarding the chronic illness, in addition to discussing the changes the chronic illness may have on the individual and the family including physical, emotional, psychosocial, sexual, and relational are important responsibilities of all health care providers.
