The purpose of this comparative descriptive study is to identify differences between the health-seeking behaviours of rural, rural-urban and urban women in selected communities in Manitoba, Canada. Women in rural areas are assumed to be disadvantaged related to; types of services, providers available, geographic isolation, socio-economic, and gender, or cultural differences. Specific research questions guide the investigation to determine factors associated with identified differences or similarities in health-seeking behaviour in the sample population. Pender's (1987) Health Promotion Model provides the theoretical underpinning for this investigative study and was utilized to formulate the research tool. "The Women's Health Survey", (Morka, 1999), invites women over the age of 18 years to participate by answering demographic and lifestyle questions. Convenience sampling of subjects will be surveyed at a community shopping center. ANCOVA's will be used to analyze relationships among variables. Investigative undertakings relative to this research study strive to enhance the current body of knowledge, promote awareness of unique gender specific health concerns, and foster development of women centred health promotion programs explicit to the needs of rural women.
