As you begin to engage in the process of exploring the relationships between philosophy, science, theory and the implications for nursing practice, you need to learn more about concepts which are building blocks of theory. The currently accepted metaparadigm concepts in nursing are person, environment, health and nursing. These metaparadigm concepts are abstract vehicles of thought that guided the development of many nursing theories. These theories, in turn provide frameworks for explaining, predicting, and sometimes controlling situations in nursing practice. Please note that nursing practice is not only referring to clinical practice, it can also refer to nursing education. Each of these metaparadigm concepts encompasses many less abstract concepts, which have been written about and explored by scholars. Task
The purpose of this concept mapping assignment is to explore some of these concepts relevant to students’ own nursing practice or research interests. This exploration is done through the following process:
1. Identify 4 concepts (one concept under each of the metaparadigm concepts) relevant to your practice or research interest. Make sure the 4 concepts are related in some way. For example, you are interested in knowing more about case management for indigenous population who are treated for hypertension in primary care clinics. Therefore, you identified “case management” as a concept under the metaparadigm concept of “nursing”. You identified “indigenous population” as the concept under “person,” the concept of “primary care clinics” under “environment,” and the concept of “hypertension” under “health.”
2. Search the literature to see if a concept analysis has been done on each of the identified concepts.
3. Write a summary for each concept. You will have a total of 4 summaries. If a concept analysis paper on the selected concept has been done, please simply paraphrase the abstract of the concept analysis paper; if a concept analysis paper on the selected concept has not been done, please provide a summary of the concept citing at least 3 scholarly sources (excluding sources like dictionaries, Wiki and other informal sources). Each summary should be at least 300 words.
4. Proofread the paper including APA style checking.
