Abstract [en]

Recently, the relationship between theory and research has received more attention. It seems that in the past 10 to 15 years more research studies have been published that are more or less conceptualized within (nursing) theories. However, it is not always clear how the theory has been used. The purpose of this study was to analyse the role of theory in nursing practice research. To this end, papers published in six nursing journals between 1986 and 1990 have been studied. It can be concluded that, in comparison with earlier analyses, the use of theories in nursing research studies has increased (from 13% to 21%), but the use of nursing theories has not become more frequent. However, the testing of nursing theories is minimal. On the other hand, research results are being cumulated progressively in regard to theory or to other research.
