The purpose of this study was to identify major family issues described by midlife women diagnosed with breast cancer. Thirty-seven audio-taped interviews from a larger study to evaluate experience-guided intervention after a breast cancer diagnosis were used in this analysis. Women involved in the study participated in open-ended interviews in describing their experience with breast cancer. If invited by the woman, family members participated in the experience-guided intervention. In the larger study, the experience-guided intervention was given to a randomized group of midlife women diagnosed with breast cancer while a comparison group completed the same evaluation tools over three time periods. The purpose of the larger study was to evaluate experience-guided intervention in regard to individual health status, level of involvement in health-related activities and perceived family health over a one year period. Experience-guided intervention is a three session interview through which women describe their experience with breast cancer and hear a summary of their experience. In addition, issues of importance to the woman are discussed. The intervention is based on the paradigm of listening to and creating partnerships with women in health care. Valuing the voice and experience of women is the framework for the study which is based on prior research studies on the experience of midlife women diagnosed with breast cancer. The method of analysis includes compiling all statements made in reference to family structure or functioning. Thematic analysis of the statements is in process. It is anticipated that examples of spousal/partner interaction patterns will also be described Funded by the Oncology Nursing Foundation
