“Understanding, evaluating and using nursing theory”
Professor Mark Risjord, Emory University, USA.
Mark Risjord is a professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Professor of Nursing at Emory University. His book Nursing Knowledge - Science, Practice and Philosophy (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010) draws on philosophy to understand the relationship between nursing science, nursing theory, and nursing practice. He has published essays in the Journal of Advanced Nursing, Journal of Nursing Scholarship, and Nursing Philosophy. Professor Risjord will give an open lecture entitled ”Understanding, Evaluating, and Using Nursing Theory.” In his lecture, he will talk about that nursing practice requires an understanding of the biological, psychological, and social dimensions of patient care. Nurses today develop middle range theory in order to provide the theoretical support for nursing practice. This lecture will explore how middle range theory can be analyzed and evaluated. The goal of the lecture is to develop new criteria that will help nurses understand middle range theory, evaluate the scientific support for middle range theory, and apply middle range theory to nursing situations.
