A Critique of the Theory of Planned Behavior in the Cancer Screening Domain.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Apr-Jun 01;45(2):179-193. Epub 2021 Nov 10.

Departments of Biobehavioral Nursing Science (Ms An) and Human Development Nursing Science (Dr Vincent), College of Nursing, University of Illinois at Chicago.

The theory of planned behavior (TPB) has been widely used to guide research in cancer screening-related behavior, but no critique of the TPB's application in this domain has been published. We used Fawcett and DeSanto-Madeya's 2013 framework to analyze and evaluate the theory. The theory was developed on the basis of antecedent knowledge regarding human behavior, and its concepts and propositions are comprehensively delineated. Read More

Advances in Conceptual and Methodological Issues in Symptom Cluster Research: A 20-Year Perspective.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Apr 29. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Schools of Nursing (Ms Harris and Drs Dodd, Kober, and Miaskowski) and Medicine (Drs Dhruva and Miaskowski), University of California, San Francisco; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts (Dr Hammer); and School of Nursing, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Dr Conley).

Two conceptual approaches are used to evaluate symptom clusters: "clustering" symptoms (ie, variable-centered analytic approach) and "clustering" patients (ie, person-centered analytic approach). However, these methods are not used consistently and conceptual clarity is needed. Given the emergence of novel methods to evaluate symptom clusters, a review of the conceptual basis for older and newer analytic methods is warranted. Read More

Reviews of Literature in Nursing Research: Methodological Considerations and Defining Characteristics.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Feb 24. Epub 2022 Feb 24.

School of Nursing, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada (Ms Silva and Drs Woo, Galica, Wilson, and Luctkar-Flude); School of Nursing, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Santa Catarina, Brazil (Dr Padilha and Ms Petry); and Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (Dr Silva E Silva).

Despite the availability of guidelines about the different types of review literature, the identification of the best approach is not always clear for nursing researchers. Therefore, in this article, we provide a comprehensive guide to be used by health care and nursing scholars while choosing among 4 popular types of reviews (narrative, integrative, scoping, and systematic review), including a descriptive discussion, critical analysis, and decision map tree. Although some review methodologies are more rigorous, it would be inaccurate to say that one is preferable over the others. Read More

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Jan-Mar 01;45(1):38-52

College of Nursing, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (Mss Graf, Ruiz, Kendrick, and Shaw and Drs Lopez, Snethen, and Mkandawire-Valhmu); School of Nursing, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Dr Luebke); School of Nursing, University of Portland, Oregon (Dr Olukotun); and School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Tulane University, Louisiana (Dr Silvestre).

The purpose of this theoretical article is to analyze the utility of postcolonial, Black, and Chicana feminist frameworks to inform nursing research and practice specific to mental health needs of Latina women migrant farmworkers. Twentieth-century Western feminist narratives overlooked the intersecting systems of oppression experienced by women of color, including Latina women. Feminist epistemologies are useful in understanding the complex sociopolitical contexts that have impacted women's health outcomes and well-being. Read More

Learning in the Third Room-A Way to Develop Praxis by Embracing Differences Between Theoretical and Practical Knowledge.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Apr-Jun 01;45(2):E48-E55. Epub 2022 Jan 11.

Department of Health Sciences, University West, Trollhättan, Sweden; and Department of Health Sciences in Åalesund, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway.

Contradictions between theory and practice are well known in nursing. To this end, this article discusses a learning strategy that might facilitate the capture of the dialectic between theory and practice, equally valid components of a nurse's competence, giving the 2 forms of knowledge equal relevance. Using a virtual platform (ie, the "third room") decreases the power order between different forms of knowledge. Read More

To a Centrality of Compassion: Operationalizing the Emancipatory Theory of Compassion.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Apr-Jun 01;45(2):114-126. Epub 2022 Jan 11.

Rock Harbor Research Institute, LLC, Key Largo, Florida, and Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence, Colorado Springs (Dr Constantinides); and Hahn School of Nursing and Health Sciences, University of San Diego, San Diego, California (Dr Georges).

The emancipatory theory of compassion, created by Dr Jane Georges, assumes the universality of suffering (physical, psychoemotional, socioeconomic, or biopolitical), and the means by which suffering can be alleviated: compassion. The theory also assumes that nurses can knowingly or unknowingly create environments in which suffering is perpetuated. Through critical review of Georges' work and major caring theories, an operationalized model was developed with which nurses may frame inquiry and practice focused on compassion, the alleviation of suffering through the deconstruction of power relations, and the promotion of health equity, social justice, and human rights.

The Potential of Merging Intersectionality and Critical Ethnography for Advancing Refugee Women's Health Research.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2022 Apr-Jun 01;45(2):143-154. Epub 2021 Dec 7.

School of Nursing, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada (Dr Al-Hamad); Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada (Drs Forchuk and Oudshoorn); and Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada (Dr McKinley).

Critical ethnography and intersectionality are increasingly engaged in nursing and refugee research. Both approaches study marginalized populations and explore how their daily experiences of inequality and marginalization are influenced by various forms of oppression, power structures, and cultural context. A blended approach of critical ethnography with intersectionality can inform research with marginalized groups as both have much in common, including the call for social justice and change.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Dec 7. Epub 2021 Dec 7.

Mennonite College of Nursing, Illinois State University, Normal.

Accurately measuring and reporting the demographic characteristics of research participants are imperative to provide consumers of research with an understanding of who was included in a study. While researchers often, incorrectly, use the variables sex and gender interchangeably, these 2 variables are different. We conducted a content analysis of 239 randomly selected research articles, with the purpose of describing how researchers have used sex and gender in studies published in nursing journals and identifying opportunities for improved clarity and precision in measuring these 2 variables.
