Identify and define the above concepts. Identify how they could be measured in a research study. Be careful that you do not use compound concepts.
Directions The assignment asks that you take Watson’s theory and apply it to a nursing practice issue in your clinical setting. You are to discuss two Caritas of Watson’s theory: one Caritas should reflect the outcome you want to achieve, and the other Caritas should discuss the practice change you would need to make to achieve the outcome. In this paper you would also discuss how you would measure the two Caritas (one for the outcome and one to assess if the change in practice occurred); you will need to define the concepts you are using in your proposal and develop a proposition between them. Please include several research articles on the reference page, cite them using APA, and include citations within your paper for ideas you have obtained from the evidence. The paper requires a title page, abstract, content, and reference page. 1) Identify an outcome of nursing practice in your area of practice that can be improved. • Outcome of nursing practice: Substance Abuse Relapse • Area of practice: Behavioral Health/ Mental Health 2) Briefly support why it is a problem (Substance Abuse Relapse) with evidence from the literature. This is not the major focus of the assignment so do not elaborate. • Please support using current statistics etc., for the nation (US) and Las Vegas, Nevada. 3) Create a clinical nursing (not medical) theory in the form Concept A | Proposition | Concept B. Think of the structure like two nouns and a verb. While the term proposition is much more complex in the dictionary, in our use it is the connecting term between the two concepts Please use this format: Concept A increases then Concept B also increases Concept A: Harm reduction strategies Proposition: Increases Concept B: Then Comprehensive strategy for avoiding relapses increase; helps patient into the maintenance phase of behavioral change. Watson’s theory concept # 8 Caritas (the outcome you want to achieve) • Co-create (Caritas Field)-Creating a healing environment at all levels, subtle environment for energetic authentic caring presence. Watson’s theory concept # 9 Caritas (Caritas discussing the practice change) • Minister (Humanity)- Reverentially assisting with basic needs as sacred acts, touching mindbody spirit of spirit of other; sustaining human dignity. 4) Identify and define the above concepts. Identify how they could be measured in a research study. Be careful that you do not use compound concepts. If you find the words “and” or “or” in your theory, you are probably too complex. Remember that the paper is not about the problem. It is about constructing a clinical theory and matching it to a middle-range theory and conceptual model your clinical theory represents. Conclude the paper with your discoveries made in your readings and the impact on the nursing profession of your discoveries. Explore, briefly, discovered questions that require further research. Summarize the paper in the conclusion. Expectations APA formatted paper; Abstract is required. References: 5 to 10. There should be enough to support the links between the concepts of the problem and the concepts of Watson’s Theory of Caring.
