Transcultural nursing: The Madeleine Leininger Theory By Caitlin Vorisek, Melissa Taylor, Penelope Ostarly Tameika Monday, Yennys Rodriguez Alonso, & Yanisleibis Molina
Introduction Dr. M.Ladinger, Madeleine Leininger, nursing theorist, is responsible for expanding on what is call “holistic care”. Leininger is a licensed registered nurse and PhD in human science, science and philosophy. She explained the need for knowledge of patient cultural similarities and differences in her publications, Culture Care Diversity and Universality and Transcultural Nursing ( Busher, 2016) . Before, Leininger basic physiological, sociological and environmental background were the main aspect of the nursing assessment. Her theory introduced the culturological assessment. This concept of nursing involved acknowledgment of a patient’s generational and spiritual beliefs. Transcultural nursing addressed the patient, education, nursing and environment, the basic metaparadigms of nursing. By being culturally competent, nursing care became more patient directed. Knowing how a patient’s cultural background will allow them to accept, view and follow health guidelines, opened nurse-patient relationships (Wehbe-Alamah, 2018). This allows trust and a more cohesive path to patient centered care.
Transcultural Nursing and the Four Metaparadigm Concepts The theory of transcultural nursing presented by Leininger, does not agree with the traditional four concepts of the nursing metaparadigm: person, environment, nursing, and health. Instead the transcultural theory offers alternative concepts that are more culturally appropriate (Leininger & McFarland, 2006)
Leininger’s Concepts Caring in the context of culture, caring is the practices used and actions taken to attain healing and promote wellbeing (McFarland & Wehbe-Alamah, 2014).
