Purpose: This qualitative study explored the basis of the relatively low uptake of Breast cancer screening (BSC) breast self-examination (BSE) among New Zealand rural women. Consistent with an interpretive research approach to social phenomena, it was anticipated that part of the explanation would lie in the meanings which women attach to health and health-seeking behaviors per se. The conceptual framework of Harris and Guten’s “Health Protection”model(1979)guided the study. Subjects: as dictated by the grounded theory tenet of theoretical sampling comprised some 45 rural New Zealand women, ages 21-69 within the Palmerston North area. Method: Semi-structured interviews at women’s homes were taken and recorded. Transcripts of interviews were contemporaneously analyzed according to grounded theory processes, such as the constant comparative analysis. Results of this study centered around the emergence of a health-protective paradox within the identified core-variable-“Vigilance-harmonizing”-which was generated to reconcile the seeming inconsistencies within, and between individual women and their respective heath protection practices. Implications: This conceptualization was developed from the substantive data in order to provide a new model designed to increase the effectiveness of nursing interventions for promotion of women’s health care seeking patterns. Specifically, the model which detected several orientations towards single health behavior actions, can, by illuminating processes from the women’s perspective indicate which processes are most suitable and congruent for incorporation in health education measures, especially from the derived the cues of language usage, designed to promote the uptake of BCS and BSE.
