Katharine Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory
Evaluate nursing theories in relation to practice, research, education or administration
-Your answer should be in APA (2010) format. Every paragraph has bounded the literature used and that meets the requirements of APA. I would like you to follow the format below when answering the questions for the next four discussion assignments.
-Within your group, decide what Middle Range Theories (Ch. 22= Katharine Kolcabas’ Comfort Theory) in the readings you will become the expert on. Each group member should choose a different theory. How you decide that is up to your group.
-Start your answer by providing a brief overview of the theory. Summarize the readings in your words.
-Then discuss what you think the theory actually means and how you see the theory being utilized in actual practice (or if you don’t think it can be then explain why).
-Provide a very brief nursing situation and how the theory or an aspect of the theory can be useful in the situation (do not use the scenarios used in the book).
-Conclude with what you think about the theory and its usefulness to nursing. Please do not be afraid to say what you really think. If you think the theory is “BS” then says that. If you think the theory is really great then tell us why.
