Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common disabling chronic illness in older adults. Although much of the research in OA has been done with women, the disease affects both men and women. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the health concerns of men with OA of the knee for use in the design of appropriate nursing interventions. Methodology: Participants were surveyed using the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales 2 (AIMS2). This tool is widely used for evaluation of arthritis-related health status. Results: Participants included 104 men with a clinical diagnosis of OA in the knee. Areas of greatest concern were walking and bending (86.5%), arthritis pain (85.6 %), and mobility (53%). The majority rated their present health as good or fair, but predicted in 10 years their health would change to fair or poor and their arthritis would be a much greater problem. Conclusions: Based on these findings, interventions for men should address pain and decreases in mobility. There is also a need to test methods that enhance self-management skills and autonomy for the purpose of improving arthritis-related health status, satisfaction with health, and hope for the future.
