Abstract

The aim of this study is to compare the differences in health promotion behaviors by the use of complementary alternative therapy(CAT) in elderly women with osteoarthritis. A total of 621 elderly women with osteoarthritis from public health centers and their branches at a city of C state were enrolled. This study analyzed the frequency and percentage of complementary alternative therapy utilization; a Chi-square test was used for utilization analysis according to subjects' general characteristics and disease features. Degree of health promotion behaviors according to CAT utilization was analyzed by a t-test and ANOVA. The study found that the CAT utilization rate for the total of 621 people was 61.7 %. For health promotion behaviors according to CAT utilization, statistically significant differences were found in exercise (p<0.001), health responsibility (p<0.001) and self-realization (p=0.016) from the domains. This study demonstrated the differences of health promotion behaviors based on CAT utilization. Due to the results of this study it is notable to mention that counseling, instruction for CAT utilization, and strategy development for health promotion are necessary for elderly women with osteoarthritis.
