The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of illness demands and marital support on psychological adjustment to chronic illness among Botswana couples. Diabetes provides the exemplar for chronic illnesses. Four concepts from King's Systems Framework for Nursing, perceptions, interactions, environment, and health, provide a framework for the study. The study will employ a cross-sectional explanatory design with convenience sampling. Face-to face interviews will be conducted with 74 persons with diabetes and their partners in rural and urban Botswana, using a structured questionnaire. Participants will be men and women aged 30-65 years with a diagnosis of diabetes and their partners, to whom they have been married or cohabiting for at least one year. Data analysis will include descriptive statistics and hierarchical multiple regression to test the effects of illness demands and marital support on psychological adjustment. Separate regression models will be estimated for patients and spouses. Understanding the challenges faced by couples with chronic illness can help nurses to develop culturally appropriate counseling strategies for patients and spouses.
