Key Arguments of Nursing Theories
Chapter 21 – Katharine Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory
Kolcaba’s Theory of Comfort was first developed in the 1990s. It is a middle-range theory for health practice, education, and research. This theory has the potential to place comfort in the forefront of healthcare. According to the model, comfort is an immediate desirable outcome of nursing care.
Chapter 22 – Joanne Duffy’s Quality-Caring Model
The Quality-Caring Model exposes and demonstrates the value of nursing within the evidence-based practice milieu of modern health care. Relationships characterized by caring are theorized to influence positive outcomes for patients/families, health care providers, and health care systems.
