Women's social role quality may be an important factor in adaptation to heart surgery. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships among different dimensions of role quality, physical health, and well-being in women after heart surgery. The theoretical framework was based on a multidimensional view of social roles (specifically, role balance, role discrepancy, and role salience). One-hundred and fifty-seven women (aged 32-86) who had undergone heart surgery were mailed surveys that included multiple self-report measures of physical health status, role quality, and psychological well-being. Multiple regression analyses indicated that, in general, role quality mediated effects of physical health on psychological well being in women after heart surgery. Overall, older women women(n=68) were similar to midlife women (n=68) in physical recovery from heart surgery. Poorer health outcomes were associated with the number of health problems, not age. Women with more health problems and lower subjective health perceptions had lower role quality. Empirical information from this study concerning women's roles and the linkages between women's physical health and functioning, their ability to carry out important roles and their subsequent well-being may help direct meaningful nursing interventions to assist women regain healthy, active lives after heart surgery.
