Abstract/Summary Occupational therapy was founded on the belief that there was a link between occupational engagement and health. Although there is a growing evidence base to support that belief, more research is required to understand the complex relationship between occupation and health. This was one reason that we undertook the research reported in this chapter. It is clear in the literature, and from our clinical and research experiences, that living with a chronic and/or life-threatening illness provides an opportunity for examining how individuals respond to illness. This research provided us with an opportunity to bring both of these together in an exploration of the occupational experience of living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. For us, conducting this research was fascinating. It was also difficult at times, due to the challenges some participants had faced. Using a narrative approach resulted in a particularly deep and broad understanding of each man's life. Ultimately, this research provided useful insights into living with HIV and how this can be understood from an occupational perspective.
