KATHARINE KOLCABA’S COMFORT THEORY Haley Chadwick Nursing Theory 600
INTRODUCTION Understanding comfort can guide nursing care where interventions are focused on physical, mental, social, and environmental aspects (Drouin, Kolcaba & Tilton, 2006). I chose to study Katharine Kolcaba’s Theory of Comfort because pediatric oncology patient’s and families can be one of the most difficult populations to achieve relief. Katharine Kolcaba was born in 1944 and graduated in 1965 with diploma of nursing. She began to develop the Theory of Comfort in the 1990’s and it is continued to be used today. - katharine-kolcaba.html
