Caring Theory and Practice: entering a Simultaneous Concept Analysis
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
To better understand the approach of caring in nursing and the role of theory in practice, we wanted to consolidate the empirical findings from three studies performed to reveal nurses’ caring intentions, their lived experience of reflecting caring theory in practice, with caring theory by Watson (1979, 2008).
Through a simultaneous concept analysis (SCA) of nine concepts, caring theory was consolidated with the findings of three empirical studies – to reveal the dynamics of caring theory and practice. In conclusion these nine concepts interrelate to the advanced concept mediating care. Mediating care is the visualized outcome or evidence for the intertwining of theory and practice in caring.
