Description : Nurses routinely set goals for, and frequently with, clients. And yet how often is that process examined from a nursing theory perspective? This book provides a succinct overview of Imogene King's theory which emphasizes client participation and mutual goal-setting and provides an interactive framework for nurses. Evans describes the origin of the theory and its underlying assumptions and provides examples for application.
Description : Between 1817 and 1825, 10,000 British mercenaries, many of them veterans of the Napoleonic Wars, left Europe to join the armies and navies of Bolivar, San Martin, and other leaders fighting to liberate their countries from the colonial domination of Spain and Portugal. Very few of these mercenaries came back. Many succumbed to tropical diseases or battles, and the remainder settled in the new states that they helped to create. This two-volume edition tells the little known story of these freedom mercenaries. Using historical evidence, this work offers a complete study of the struggle of both Britons and South Americans in these Wars of Independence and analyzes their actions in the larger context of the foreign policies of the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Imperial Russia, and the German States. Each volume features self-contained, but complementary chapters that follow one major unit or volunteer. Written in an approachable style, this book offers insight into an under-examined historical epic.
Description : This text guides you through the evolution of nursing's theoretical foundations and examines the ways in which these principles influence the practice of the discipline."--Jacket.
Description : From the worldOCOs leading authorities in nursing research, this thoroughly updated 2nd Edition of the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research presents key terms and concepts in nursing research comprehensively explained by over 200 expert contributors."
Description : "An additional assumption was that the processes for theory development were new to nursing and hence, nurses in graduate programs learned strategies for advancing knowledge from other disciplines. This assumption was debunked with the knowledge that nurses were always engaged in knowledge development, driven by their experiences in clinical practice. Because of these assumptions, most of the early writing about theory development was about outlining strategies that should be used, rather than strategies that have already been used in the discipline to develop theories. Theorists themselves did not uncover or adequately discuss ways by which they developed their theories, therefore the tendency was to describe processes that were based on theories developed in other disciplines, mainly the physical and social sciences. And an implicit assumption was made that there should be a single strategy for theory development, some claiming to begin the process from practice, and others believing it should be driven by research"--Provided by publisher.
Description : This volume, based on the work of Imogene King, makes a significant contribution to the advancement of nursing science. It begins with a philosophical overview by King herself after which prominent international contributors describe specific implementations of King's theory. The progression of knowledge in the field nursing science is evaluated and the volume culminates with suggestions for further exploration and refinement.

Description : Continuing development and testing of propositions and formulations from nursing theory are critical for the continued evolution of nursing science. In this text, the editors and contributors highlight significant work in middle range theory development using King's Conceptual System and Theory of Goal Attainment. Explored in the three sections of this volume are: An overview of the foundations on which middle range theories are built from within King's Conceptual System, including a chapter by Dr. King Presentation of a variety of middle range theories applied to individuals, groups and families, and organizations--from children to the elderly Examination of post-middle range theory development and challenges for further nursing research and education Each chapter has a consistent format and includes a wide-range of perspectives and geographical locations, allowing readers to compare knowledge-building efforts across international lines.
