The developmental and situational transitions that occur in people's lives and the subsequent effects on the health of individuals, families, populations and communities have been a practice focus of public/community health nurses (P/CHN) for over a century. The purpose of this presentation is to propose a research program model that provides direction for the study of the health effects of life transitions for women and children and gives direction to the testing of P/CHN intervention for these populations. The major concepts that are articulated in the model are the perception of the transition event in the context of: (1) the interaction of larger environmental factors and personal determinants, (2) cognitive and behavioral factors that influence transition outcomes, and (3) selected outcomes of transition that capture both individual and health system categories. Salient P/CHN interventions have key applicability to the cognitive and behavioral factors associated with P/CHN practice with women and their children during major life transitions such as pregnancy, childrearing, and the development of chronic illness in midlife women. The potential of this research model for nursing includes contributing to the existing evidence on such transitions as: (1) becoming a mother, (2) becoming a caregiver, health decision-maker, and manager for children and other family members, and (3) having to self-manage personal chronic illness. The concepts and implications of the research model will be elaborated using selected results from pilot studies that have informed the development of the model.
