Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this correlational study is to examine the relationship between successful aging, global self-esteem, and sexual quality-of-life of community-based post-menopausal women.  The intricacy of defining aging successfully for women requires a multidimensional approach that allows for the complexity of a women’s philosophical world view by addressing the interrelated aspects of successful aging.  Using Flood’s Successful Aging mid-range nursing theory as the theoretical basis for this research incorporates the multidimensionality of a sociocultural and biosocial model of successful aging including intrapsychic, spiritual, functional, and gerotranscendence elements.   

Methods: The study uses a correlational research survey design of self-reporting questionnaires comparing the variation between global self esteem and sexual wellbeing, and the effects on perceived successful aging of post-menopausal women.  English speaking participants worldwide are invited via blogs, emails, and Facebook to engage in this study by accessing a website www.WiseWomenPress.com.  A click on a Research tab interfaces with a SurveyMonkey link to complete the electronic survey for the study.  The study will be available on the Internet until a (N=377) is reached.  The questionnaires are: Successful Aging Inventory (SAI), The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES), and the Sexual Quality of Life - Female Scale (SQOL-F). Descriptive and inferential statistics compare independent variables of global self-esteem and SQOL-F with perceived successful aging.   

Results: The study is being conducted and findings will be available at the time of the conference.

Conclusions: The survey evaluates Flood’s Successful Aging theory on a population of post-menopausal community based women.  The results will contribute information on the relationship between intrapsychic factors of personal control and the gerotranscendence factors of self acceptance and intimate relationships with predictions of meaning in life and successful aging.  Future research is needed on this cohort of post-menopausal women to expand awareness of self-acceptance and self-agency as predictors of successful aging.
