NURSING THEORY ANALYSIS5giving a coherent understanding of how the theory is pragmatic to patient care. The ten carative factors to the theory are: “1. Formation of a humanistic- altruistic system of values2. Instillation of faith and hope3. Cultivation of sensitivity to oneself and to others4. Development of a helping-trusting human caring relationship5.Promotion and acceptance of the expression of both positive and negative feelings6. Systemic use of a creative problem-solving caring process7. Promotion of transpersonal teaching-learning8. Provision for a supportive, protective, and/or corrective mental, physical, societal, and spiritual environment9. Assistance with gratification of human needs10. Allowance for existential- phenomenological-spiritual forces” (Butts, 2015, p.503). The philosophical foundation for Watson’s theory derive from the first three carative factors. Thelast seven carative factors were developed from the first three carative factors.Another important concept of the human caring theory is the transpersonal caring relationship. To be transpersonal one must have a unified body, mind, spirit, shared consciousness, and one with the universe (Butts, 2015, p.503). During this relationship, the nurse is true of self and others, concentrating on caring, spiritual healing, and the patient holistically, rather than just the sickness alone. For the nurse to develop a long-lasting trusting relationship with the patient, the nurse must be open to listening and understanding the patient’s viewpoint. The goal of the transpersonal caring relationship is to maintain patient’s self-respect, mortality, and enhance their overall happiness.
NURSING THEORY ANALYSIS6An additional concept to of the human caring theory is the caring moment. Caring can consist of a person’s feelings, thoughts, actions, beliefs and perception. During the caring moment the nurse pursues to attach with the patient on a spiritual level, going outside the outer appearance and disease. The nurse and the patient choose what actions is required during their relationship. Using information and expertise, the nurse enables new opportunities and grow a profound assembly with the patient.Carative factors, the transpersonal caring relationship, and the caring moment are major concepts that influence this theory. With the help of these concepts, patients will reach the necessary patient outcomes. All three concepts are interrelated. Carative factors help generate transpersonal caring relationships, and transpersonal relationships help produce the caring moment by allowing the nurse and patient to build a trusting relationship. Overall, the caring theory breeds a positive environment which leads to positive outcomes. Watson’s theory consists of both implicit and explicit assumptions. The seven assumptions in which the theory is grounded are:“1. Caring can be effectively demonstrated and practiced only interpersonally2. Caring consists of carative factors that result in the satisfaction of certain human needs3. Effective caring promotes health and individual or family growth
