Abstract [en]

In order to describe how women with osteoporosis strive to maintain daily life we interviewed11 women using a reflective lifeworld approach based on phenomenological analysis.Osteoporosis is a major public health concern in the Western world, and is predominantamong women. Our findings indicated that meanings of striving to maintain daily life implya belief in oneself and one’s own capabilities. The women expressly speak out for themselvesas a way of finding reconciliation without giving in to the illness. Women with osteoporosisexpect to gain support early in the course of their illness. They require advice on how tomanage the disease as well as support for striving to maintain daily living. Therefore, it iscrucial that the women not only are given information about the disease. Equally important isto establish continuity in healthcare encounters, and that health care offers support foundedin the women’s lived experiences with focus on their capacities.
