Nursing Theories and a Philosophy of Nursing Leininger's Culture Care Theory Early in her career, Madeleine Leininger recognized the importance of the element of caring in the profession of nursing. Through her observations while working as a nurse, she identified a lack of cultural and care knowledge as the missing component to a nurse's understanding of the many variations required in patient care to support compliance, healing, and wellness.
Leininger's Culture Care Theory attempts to provide culturally congruent nursing care through "cognitively based assistive, supportive, facilitative, or enabling acts or decisions that are mostly tailor-made to fit with individual, group's, or institution's cultural values, beliefs, and lifeways.
Culturally congruent care is possible when the following occurs in the nurse-patient relationship: This mode requires the use of both generic and professional knowledge and ways to fit such diverse ideas into nursing care actions and goals. Care knowledge and skill are often repatterned for the best interest of the clients.
Thus all care modalities require coparticipation of the nurse and clients consumers working together to identify, plan, implement, and evaluate each caring mode for culturally congruent nursing care. These modes can stimulate nurses to design nursing actions and decisions using new knowledge and culturally based ways to provide meaningful and satisfying wholistic care to individuals, groups or institutions.
InLeininger defined transcultural nursing as "a substantive area of study and practice focused on comparative cultural care caring values, beliefs, and practices of individuals or groups of similar or different cultures with the goal of providing culture-specific and universal nursing care practices in promoting health or well-being or to help people to face unfavorable human conditions, illness, or death in culturally meaningful ways.
The concepts addressed in the model are: Care, which assists others with real or anticipated needs in an effort to improve a human condition of concern, or to face death.
Caring is an action or activity directed towards providing care. Culture refers to learned, shared, and transmitted values, beliefs, norms, and lifeways to a specific individual or group that guide their thinking, decisions, actions, and patterned ways of living.
Culture Care is the multiple aspects of culture that influence and help a person or group to improve their human condition or deal with illness or death. Culture Care Diversity refers to the differences in meanings, values, or acceptable forms of care in or between groups of people.
Culture Care Universality refers to common care or similar meanings that are evident among many cultures. Nursing is a learned profession with a disciplined focus on care phenomena.
Worldview is the way people tend to look at the world or universe in creating a personal view of what life is about. Cultural and Social Structure Dimensions include factors related to spirituality, social structure, political concerns, economics, educational patterns, technology, cultural values, and ethnohistory that influence cultural responses of people within a cultural context.
Health refers to a state of well-being that is culturally defined and valued by a designated culture. Cultural Care Preservation or Maintenance refers to nursing care activities that help people from particular cultures to retain and use core cultural care values related to healthcare concerns or conditions.
Cultural Care Accomodation or Negotiation refers to creative nursing actions that help people of a particular culture adapt or negotiate with others in the healthcare community in an effort to attain the shared goal of an optimal health outcome for patients of a designated culture.
Cultural Care Re-Patterning or Restructuring refers to therapeutic actions taken by culturally competent nurses.
These actions help a patient to modify personal health behaviors towards beneficial outcomes while respecting the patient's cultural values. The theory's culturalogical assessment provides a holistic, comprehensive overview of the client's background.responsibilities.
