Purpose: The purpose of this investigation was to explore and describe
conceptualizations of health held by migrant farmworker women. Theoretical
framework: Transition theory and a feminist approach were used to guide
this research and interpret the findings. Research Design: Qualitative
description from a naturalistic perspective was used to explore
conceptualizations of health provided by 21 migrant farmworker women
during a migration experience to the Great Lakes area of the United
States. Analysis of findings: Content analysis was used to examine
transcribed audiotaped interviews. Line-by-line coding lead to
identification of four broad categories: (a) being at peace; (b) ability
to perform role responsibilities; (c) absence of illness, disease, and
symptoms; and (d) adaptation to life circumstances. Relevance for nursing
practice: Understanding how migrant farmworker women conceptualize their
health can lead to development of relevant and effective interventions
that decrease or eliminate health disparities for this underserved
population of women.
