Knowledge generation in nursing evolves through analysis of

constancy or inconstancy of patterns in different situations, age

groups, or cultures over time (Stevenson, 1988). A constant

comparative method was used to examine elderly nursing center

clients' experience of health promotion. Data were integrated from

semi-structured interviews, the Health Self-Determinism Index

(HSDI- Cox, Miller and Mill, 1987) designed to measure intrinsic

motivation for health, and five months of field observation.

Thirty-one semi-structured interviews with participant observation

with 80 low and middle income elders were included. A core human

response process Going about Health was described.



Major patterns of the process of Going about Health included:

keeping active, maintaining relationships, and attending health

behaviors. These patterns were compared with those discovered in

other research. The constancy of patterns provided support for the

generalizability of the findings of this study among low income

elders who are most at risk for health problems and least utilize

health promotion services.
