Abstract:
Session presented on Friday, July 25, 2014: This session presents Dr. Im's program of research in women's health and Internet research. Her beginning research question is presented with her former experience in oncology units and women's health. Her history of developing her research program is presented with evolving research questions. Then, her most recently completed study on a Web-based multi-ethnic study on menopausal symptoms among four major ethnic groups of midlife women is presented with implications for future research. The study aimed to explore ethnic differences in menopausal symptom experience among four major ethnic groups in the U.S. (Whites, Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians). The study was theoretically based on a feminist perspective. This cross-sectional study included two phases: (a) a quantitative national Internet survey and (b) four qualitative ethnic-specific online forums. The Internet survey was conducted among 512 midlife women using multiple instruments including questions on background characteristics and health and menopausal status and the Midlife Women's Symptom Index. Four ethnic-specific online forums were conducted among 90 midlife women using 7 online forum topics. The Internet survey data were analyzed using multiple regression analyses and cluster analyses. The online forum data were analyzed using thematic analysis. The findings indicated that there were significant ethnic differences in the total number (F=12.71, p
