J Holist Nurs. 2004 Mar;22(1):12-31. Stuifbergen AK, Harrison TC, Becker H, Carter P. University of Texas, Austin, School of Nursing, USA. Women with chronic disabling conditions live with multiple symptoms that decrease their ability to function in society, and they may be at elevated risk for further morbidity with age. Despite research indicating that health-promoting behaviors decrease the risk for further morbidity, few interventions have been designed to help women with chronic disabling conditions promote their health. The purpose of this article is to present the results of a pilot study of a wellness intervention adapted for use with women with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). First, the development of the original wellness intervention for women with multiple sclerosis (MS) will be described. Next, the steps taken to adapt the intervention to the needs of women with FMS will be described. Finally, it wil be argued that commonalities in symptoms and social experiences and the universal need for health-promoting skills make this intervention adaptable to multiple groups of women with chronic disabling conditions.
