Abstract

There has been considerable impetus to use conceptual frameworks to guide nursing practice, yet many nursing theories are not supported by research or understood by nurses. At Foothills Hospital, a Committee developed and implemented a conceptual framework based on self-care. Concepts within the framework are grounded in current nursing practice, consistent with consumer expectations and supported by philosophical statements about patient, society/environment, health and nursing.
