BY BONNIE WEAVER BATTEY, PH.D., RN.
WRITTEN BY AN EDUCATOR FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE!!!
Health professionals in today’s society are moving toward the study of a philosophical, theoretical and conceptual perspective of health, illness, and healing.
Educators of health care professionals are incorporating theoretical perspectives in curriculum design as well as organizational categories or genre for courses and course content.
The Anatomy of a Theory Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) system develops an appreciation for the part other disciplines have played in developing nursing theory, and in the part nursing theory has played in the development of other disciplines—sociology, psychology, and philosophy.
The attitude and ethics of the theory builder are presented and reviewed. The application of theory analysis to “I-Thou” theory by Martin Buber is included, and many other references are cited in this comprehensive CAI.
Examples are presented, theories analyzed, understanding of the relationships of theory to research, practice, and nursing knowledge is achieved.
Over Thirty Nursing-related Theories are defined and segmented into four distinct parts:
As thoughts are placed in the four columns of the sample theory analysis sheet, complex theory becomes clear, meaningful, and usable.
The Anatomy of a Theory CAI is designed for use in Education for
Baccalaureate, Graduate, Continuing, In-service, Distance and International programs.
