About this item

The most complete and detailed book devoted to middle range theories, Middle Range Theories: Application to Nursing Research and Practice examines theories and their applications in clinical nursing research and practice.  In this fourth edition, the authors address this dynamic relationship with increased emphasis on applications of middle range theories to practice. Every theory chapter includes examples of the theory’s use in research, its application to clinical practice and critical thinking exercises. The authors provide expert advice on selecting the appropriate theory for a nursing research project and developing the critical thinking skills needed to critique theories. Each theory chapter provides the nurse researcher with a variety of tools. Key features of the fourth edition include:
  • Brand New chapters exploring concepts surrounding Spiritual Care and Change
