Abstract [en]

The aim of this phenomenographic study was to identify and characterise what women with the diagnoses Rheumatoid Arthritis and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis consider important in the occupational performance of daily occupations to experience health regardless of their disease. Nine women, 42-65 years old participated in the study. By using a phenomenographic method with semi-structured questions the main category “Being able to be as active as possible in daily occupations” emerged. It was important for the participants to perform personally meaningful occupations to experience health. The participants found it especially important to be able to perform self-care and homemaking. The participants could experience health despite suffering from a chronic disease by using assistive devices, adjusting their daily occupations according to their level of physical function and strength and getting support from other individuals. By having access to a variety of treatments the participants could maintain or increase their level och performance of daily occupations. Though being deficient in physical function, the participants were able to achieve maximum of occupational performance by adjusting the occupation component and the environment component.
