APPLICATION OF THEORIES INNURSING RESEARCHIntroduction:In any discipline science is result of relationshipbetween the process of enquiry (research) and theproduct of knowledge (theory)Frame work for researchTheory guides Research processResearch questionsResearch designAnalysis & interpretation of data
DESIGNS FOR NURSING RESEARCHA. Quantitative Research Design.B. Qualitative Research DesignQuantitative Research DesignThe study of phenomenon that tend themselves toprecise measurement and quantification ofteninvolving a rigorous and controlled design. Theinformation collected in numerical form. Statisticalprocedures used to assess the magnitude andreliability or relationship among phenomenon.In this design theories are tested
Qualitative Research DesignThe investigation of phenomenon typically in anin-depth and holistic fashion through thecollection of rich narrative materials using aflexible research design. Here the data iscollected in narrative (non numerical) formthrough an unstructured interview . Theorganization & interpretation of data is used todiscover the underlined dimensions & patternsof relationship.This design usually generates a theory.

SPECIFIC TYPES OF QUANTITATIVERESEARCH1. Surveys – Prevalence ,distribution, interrelationship,description.2. Evaluation – Process analysisOutcome analysisImpact analysis3. Outcome Research
QUALITATITIVE RESEARCHMETHODS1. Ethnography.2. Phenomenology.3. Grounded theory.4. Historical research.5. Action research.6. Triangulation.7. Case study method
Ethnography – It is branch human enquiryassociated with the field of anthropology. Thedesign focuses on culture of a group of people.E.g. The health practices & health seekingbehavior pattern of tribal women ofreproductive age group in a selectedgeographical area.Phenomenology – This design focuses of livedexperiences of human beingExampleThe lived experiences of panic disorder inmother during postpartum period.
Grounded theory –This designfocuses on symbolic interpretation orinteractions to address verbal or nonverbal expressionExampleThe reproductive & motheringexperience of HIV positive women.
Triangulation Method:The use of multiple methods to collect or interpretdata about a phenomenon.It could be• Data triangulation (Time, space, person).• Methodological triangulation (qualitative,quantitative).• Investigator triangulation (Doctors, Nurses,Investigator).• Theoretical triangulation (Application of morethan one theory in research)
Historical research – It is the study ofinterrelationship with people activity behaviouretc. in the past.Example: Nursing – A transition from occupationto professionAction research – A research method characterizedby the systematic study of the implementation ofplanned change to a system.Example : An outcome study on implementation ofRCA type of latrines in a rural communityCase study method- “Case” is a person with acondition under study

Person (patient)Composed of three parts- Person (core circle)- Body (care circle)- Pathology (cure circle)B. Environment must be conducive to self development.Any nursing action taken in relation to the environment shouldassist the patient in attaining a personal goal.C. Health- Illness as a behavior directed by persons feeling of selfawarenessD. Nursing- the goal of nursing care is to help the patient to develop selfawareness

5. Laffery & Kulbok’s Community Health Promotion ModelThis model focuses on two complimentary paradigms1. Health paradigm2. Service paradigmThis the component of the above paradigm is composed of two major dimension1. The focus of care that include primary, secondary and tertiary care focusingon promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services.2. The client system includes individual family and community at large.3. The health personal form the base of service paradigm their servicesinfluences the health care their by decides the outcome of health paradigmspecially the community.Example: A descriptive study to assess the knowledge attitude, and skill amongvillage health nurses on immunization coverage of under five children of aselected primary health centers.

THEORIES APPLIED TO RESEARCHES WITH THE PURPOSE OFEXPLANATION AND EXPLORATION7. Paplau’s Interpersonal Relations ModelA. PersonAs an individual that strives to reduce anxiety cost by needs.B. EnvironmentIt implied that nurse must consider culture and values when caring thepatient at the hospital environment.C. HealthHealth consists of interacting physiological and interpersonal conditionspromoted through the INTERPERSONAL PROCESS (it is derived frombehavioral sciences and this model evolves psychodynamic nursing.D. NursingIs a significant therapeutic interpersonal process.Example: Interpersonal influence in relationships between psychiatricpatients and nursing staff on changing behavior in selected hospital.
The nurse and the patient are the strangers to each other and many haveentirely separate goals and interestsThe roles of each in the problematic situation may differ, partly because ofTheir individual preconceptions about the meaning of the medical problemTogether, the nurse and the patient can work toward a partially mutual andPartially individual understanding of the nature of the medical problemCommon, shared health goals can result from a mutual understanding ofThe nature of the problem and of the roles and requirements of the nurseAnd the patient in solving the problem.Their collaborative efforts can direct the nurse and the patient towardsolving he problem together, productively.CHANGING ASPECTS OF THE NURSE-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP

10. Dorothea E.Oren: Self-Care Deficit Theory of NursingA. PersonPatient to functions biologically, symbolically and socially and who has the potential forlearning and development.Is an individual subject to the forces of nature, with a capacity for self-knowledge, who canengage in deliberate action, interpret experiences, and perform beneficial actions.Is an individual who can learn to meet self-care requisites; if, for some reason, the personcannot learn self-care measures, other must provide the care.B. EnvironmentCan positively or negatively affect the person ability to provide self care.C. HealthConsist of physical, psychological interpersonal, social aspect of care and they are inseparableIt includes promotion and maintenance of health treatment of illness and prevention ofcomplicationD. NursingIs caring the sick and wellpromotes patient as a self-care agent which include self-care agency, self-care requisites andtherapeutic self-care demands.It consists of three steps determination of needs for care designing a nursing system deliveringcare.Example: A comparative study to assess the activity of daily living between the residential and nonresidential mentally challenged children in selected institutions.

Bertalaniffy General System TheoryThis model consist of four components, Structure input, processthroughput , Outcome output.Structure refers to the arrangement of parts and expressed as input.Process refers to design strategies role, functions, activities or task thatmaintain the equilibrium of the system. Is also expressed as throughput.Outcome is the end result of the interaction of the structure and processand is depend on the ability of the system to regulate the tool. Whenthere is a harmonious balance of the structure and process relationship ,then the desired outcome emerges.Feedback is the response of the structured process and outcome leadingto a recycling decision and context to modify the system.Example:Effectiveness of maternity nursing services rendered by villagehealth nurses working in subcentres of selected Health Unit Districts.

ConclusionThe relationship between research and theory isundeniable and it is important to recognize the impact of theirrelationship on the development of Nursing knowledge. Thesource of theory for research study is unique to nursing orborrowed from another discipline but the theoreticalframework should be explicit and appropriate.Let us work togetherShare our experiences in using theories and modelsLet it reflect in publications, Seminar, and ConferencesSo as to strengthen nursing as a professionHope Indian nurses may generate more theoriesAnd avoid borrowing theories from foreign theorists and fromother discipline
