A situation-specific theory of Asian immigrant women's menopausal symptom experience in the United States.

Published

Journal Article

In this article, a situation-specific theory that explains the menopausal symptom experiences of Asian immigrant women in the United States is presented. Using an integrative approach, the theory was developed on the basis of the transitions theory, a review of the relevant literature, and a study on Asian immigrant women's menopausal symptom experience in the United States. The proposed theory includes transition conditions, patterns of response, and nursing therapeutics as major concepts and explains the relationships among these major concepts. This theory should be further validated and developed in intervention studies and nursing practice with this specific population.
