Abstract:
PURPOSE: Although nursing research focused on HIV infection in minority populations is one of the stated priorities of the NNCR (1994), research in this population raises many issues that defy simple adaptation of existing research strategies. The multifaceted needs and resources of these individuals warrant an approach that includes both personal, familial and societal considerations of lethal stigmatic illness. Critical social theory provides a framework for overcoming the detachment of analytic research and the "bracketing" of interpretive methods to provide for emancipation of participants, both researcher and those who are engaged as participants in a study. SAMPLE/METHODS: A pilot study will be initiated in 1995 at the Virginia Commonwealth University HIV/AIDS Center to elicit the voices of women who are living with HIV. These individual voices will be examined both within the societal and the medical/nursing paradigms in order to illuminate the strengths, limitations and perceived vulnerabilities of minority women with HIV. The strategy outlined by Held (1980) will be used to provide a broad framework for the research methodology in this study; appropriate adaptation will be made by participants and researcher. IMPLICATIONS: This study will contribute a view of minority women living with HIV within the societal context of stigmatic disease, poverty, racism, and sexism. Findings will have implications for future nursing research in marginalized populations.
