Assignment: Concept Analysis

In “Isolation: A Concept Analysis,” Gilmartin, Grota, and Sousa (2013) analyze the concept of isolation using Walker and Avant’s methodology. They explain that the term isolation is used widely in everyday language, yet has specific scientific meanings. The authors conclude that “systematic studies of isolation using this concept can ultimately enhance nurses’ knowledge base and contribute to the quality of life for isolated persons” (p. 54). The other articles in this week’s Learning Resources present a variety of concept analyses that also have implications for nursing research, practice, education, and/or leadership

To prepare
  • Identify a primary concept related to your phenomenon of interest. (You may use the same concept you addressed in this week’s Discussion.)
  • Review Walker and Avant’s method of concept analysis presented in the McEwen & Wills text (2019) and Walker and Avant (2019). Also, review examples of concept analyses presented in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Use the eight concept-analysis steps outlined in Chapter 10 of Walker and Avant (2019) to conduct a concept analysis related to your phenomenon of interest.
  • Consider how the information and insights you gain from completing this exercise influence your understanding of the concept. Also, think about how you will use the results of your analysis to direct further inquiry.
  • In addition, think about the applicability of other concept development approaches (i.e., concept derivation and synthesis) described in the Learning Resources for your future dissertation work. Would it be helpful to use concept derivation or concept synthesis to study your phenomenon of interest? Why or why not?
  • Begin to draft a 3- to 5-page paper, following a format similar to the journal articles in this week’s Learning Resources (e.g., Moore and Walker, 2011). Include the following:
    • Introduction
      • Clearly identify the concept and provide essential context
    • Synopsis of your concept analysis
      • Discuss your findings from your review of the literature
      • Describe antecedents, attributes, and consequences
      • Present a model case, as well as one or more additional cases
      • Describe empirical referent(s)
    • Implications
      • Explain how this concept analysis has influenced your perception of the concept, and how you will use the results of this analysis to direct further inquiry.
To complete

Write your 3- to 5-page paper, as indicated above.

Abstract
Aim. To report a concept analysis of control in childbirth.

Background. Control has a variety of definitions from a wide range of disciplines.

In childbirth, however, the concept is more tenuous and depends on the context. It

can be viewed in relationship to a woman’s body and labour progression, pain,

environment and the ability to request her method of birth.

Data sources. Medline, CINAHL and PsycINFO databases were searched between

1970–2011 using the keywords, ‘control’, ‘childbirth’, ‘labour’ and ‘delivery’.

Review methods. Walker and Avant’s method of concept analysis was used for this

review. In addition, cases were placed before defining attributes as recommended by

Risjord.

Results. Four attributes of control were identified: decision-making, access to

information, personal security and physical functioning. Antecedents include preg-

nancy and expectations of the birth. Consequences include childbirth satisfaction,

childbirth experience, emotional well-being, fulfilment and the transition into

motherhood. A model case, contrary case and borderline case are described.

Conclusion. Clarifying the definition of control in childbirth and defining its

attributes can help inform women and maternity providers throughout the world.

This analysis provides clarity to a previously tenuous concept and allows practi-

tioners to better understand the critical relationship between control in childbirth

and satisfaction with the childbirth experience. It also has the potential to affect

perinatal outcomes and subsequently healthcare costs.

Keywords: childbirth, choice, concept analysis, control, labour, midwifery, nursing,

pregnancy

Introduction

Across health conditions, control is an emerging topic of

concern. In health care, discussions about control centre on

control of healthcare costs, infection control, control of

disease progression and the desire of healthcare consumers to

be more involved in the decisions that are made about their

care and the care of their

Introduction

�Nursing is, by its very nature, an occupation subject to
a high degree of stress. Every day the nurse confronts

stark suffering, grief, and death as few other people do.

Many nursing tasks are mundane and unrewarding.

Many are, by normal standards, distasteful, even dis-

gusting, others are often degrading; some are simply

frightening� (Mcgrath et al. 2003, p. 555). According to
the United Nations and World Health Organization,

job stress has become a worldwide epidemic (Collins

2006) and there is a growing body of research docu-

menting the stressful nature of the nursing role in pa-

tient care settings. The concept of stress, in general, and

role stress more specifically, lacks consensus and may

vary depending on the academic background of the

researcher (Mulhall 1996, Clegg 2001).

The health care systems, both in Canada and USA,

have encountered many challenges throughout the

years. In the early 1990s, cuts to the Canadian health

Role stress amongst nurses at the workplace: concept analysis

Aim The present study explicates the concept of role stress amongst nurses through
an analysis adopted from Walker and Avant; Strategies for Theory Construction in
Nursing, 4th edn, Prentice Hall, New Jersey, NY.
Background Role stress has become a significant problem amongst nurses and has

created much distress leading to burnout among many in the nursing profession. It

is significant to analyse the concept of role stress and its relative attributes and

consequences, in order to recognize the necessary antecedents needed to create

better conditions for nurses at the workplace.

Evaluation A modified method developed by Walker and Avant was used for this

concept analysis.

Key issues A model representing the concept of role stress was developed through

careful consideration of the attributes, consequences, antecedents and empirical

referents of role stress.

Conclusion The concept analysis of role stress among nurses at the workplace

recognized the vulnerability of the nursing discipline towards burnout and distress

Abstract
Aim. This article is a report of a concept analysis of nurse migration.

Background. International migration is increasing and nurse migrants are active

participants in this movement. Migration is a complex term and can be examined

from a range of perspectives. Analysis of nurse migration is needed to guide policy,

practice and research.

Data sources. A literature search was undertaken using electronic literature indexes,

specific journals and websites, internet search engines and hand searches. No

timeframe was placed on the search. Most literature found was published between

2001 and 2009. A sample of 80 documents met the inclusion criteria.

Method. Walker and Avant’s approach guided the analysis.

Discussion. Nurse migration can be defined by five attributes: the motivation and

decisions of individuals; external barriers and facilitators; freedom of choice to

migrate; freedom to migrate as a human right, and dynamic movement. Antecedents

of migration include the p

Abstract
Aim. To report the synthesis of the concept of perceived symptom manageability.

Background. Common symptom assessment parameters fail to address concerns

about the impact of symptoms on everyday life, overall functioning, or threats to

individuals living with the human immunodeficiency virus. We claim that the

concept of ‘perceived symptom manageability’ integrates these important

dimensions of the patients’ experience of their symptoms.

Data sources. Online databases, thesauri, and dictionaries were accessed in

January 2012. A free search was performed scanning the PubMed, CINAHL, and

PsycINFO databases for entries from 2001–2011 using ‘manageability’ in the title

or abstract as a search term.

Design. Text-based analysis.

Review methods. We followed the steps delineated by Walker and Avant for

concept synthesis. Uses of the concept ‘manageability’ were identified and listed,

meaningful usage clusters were generated, and a preliminary working definition

was created.

Results. Social resources and individual interpretation were relevant in view of

managing a difficult situation, thus positioning ‘manageability’ in a social and

interpretational context that exceeded objective control. We preliminarily defined

perceived symptom manageability as ‘the extent of the perceived ability to bring

social and personal resources into play to successfully deal with or control

symptoms, des

All of the chapters listed above provide valuable information related to concepts. For this week’s Assignment, you will engage in concept analysis, which is described in Chapter 10.

The objective of the definition of a concept is to provide meaning to an idea that promotes understanding, communication, consistency of use, clarity, and structure (Gray et al., 2017; Walker & Avant, 2019). I don’t see a definition of motivation in your posting. A definition needs to promote understanding, communication, use, clarity, and structure.  Can you propose a definition that meets these requirements?

 

Concepts need to be defined so that the research design is appropriate and measurement tools are valid and align with the concept and design (Cronin et al., 2010). Defining concepts allows us to see the concept and its function within a theory allowing us the ability to understand precisely what is described, explained, or predicted (Walker & Avant, 2019). As you can see, the definition of the concept is critically important and key to the entire research process.

 

Dr. Donna Hathaway (Laureate Education, 2014) emphasized that concepts are narrower in focus. During the process of concept definition, Dr. Hathaway stressed that the focus should be on the concept not the context and that exploration should take place outside the field of nursing. I think you might be focusing too much on context – nursing and nurse leaders.

Top of Form

Dr. Fowler,

Thank you for a good feedback and great question. Motivation is defined as the desire to achieve a goal or a certain performance level, leading to goal-directed behavior. When we refer to someone as being motivated, we mean that the person is trying hard to accomplish a certain task. Motivation is clearly important if someone is to perform well; however, it is not suficient.(Robbins & Judge, 2018).

Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs is one of the best known early theories of motivation. The theory is broken down into five needs: physiological, safety-security, social-belongingness, esteem, and self-actualization (Robbins & Judge, 2018). Each need is considered to be a level of hierarchy in that once one is fulfilled, the next level is desired. The lower levels are more focused on survival while the higher levels shift gears towards success. I think this theory of motivation is still applicable since I think it still represents how people view life today. At a fundamental level, everyone needs food, water, and some form of shelter and security to survive. Once those are achieved, then you can focus on being all you can be. However, I think Maslow’s hierarchy falls shorts by one step and one study in

Mariana

Look at the Bargagliotti article this past week – she looked at work engagement in nursing but addressed work engagement as the concept and then applied it to nursing.  You need to do the same.  Look at motivation in general, and then apply it to the model case and implications.  The ROL should be about motivation in health care, nursing, education with students, animal behavior, etc.  

Motivation cannot be both an antecedent and the concept itself.  What comes before motivation?  What needs to precede it?  Does the person or animal need a goal before being motivated?  Does the person or animal need a past experience in order to be motivated?  

Walker and Avant (2019) state that an empirical referent represents the occurrence of a concept. They note that the defining attributes and empirical referents might be the same. There are questionnaires that assess motivation.  See link:

https://www.template.net/questionnaire-templates/motivation-questionnaire/

Aren’t performance, behaviors such as turnover, communication, etc. possible consequences or outcomes of motivation (high and low), and measure the outcome of motivation but not motivation itself?

Concept Analysis-Motivation

Introduction

Motivation is attributed willingness to attain or achieve something though goal-directed behavior. In simple terms, motivation encompasses processes that consider a person’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward meeting a goal or objective. The three vital aspects of a person’s willingness are intensity, direction, and persistence. With the intensity aspect, it implies the level at which an employee works to attain the goal. On the other hand, it directly benefits the organization as persistence determines how long a worker maintains his efforts or commitments. Under the context of Maslow’s Pyramid, meeting needs such as physiological needs (sex, hunger, and thirst), a person’s safety, social (friendship, acceptance, and affection), esteem (self-respect and autonomy), and self-actualization (self-fulfillment), trigger motivation
.

Synopsis of Analysis

Aim

The research paper explains and presents the concept analysis of motivation.

Background: The current healthcare system is dynamic and requires accurate adjustment to ensure positive general organizational performance. Challenges of attending to the aging population, high demand for care services, patients with severe diseases such as cancer, and limited resources to solve future care issues demoralize healthcare providers’ efforts. With increasing demands for healthcare services, nurse leaders and nurse executives are forced to set specific goals that their team members should work to achieve them. Without motivation, it becomes challenging to attain such goals; thus, the organization’s performance decreases. Primarily, motivation is an internal process that triggers and makes a person move toward improving the quality of services provided.

Data Sources

A literature search will be critical in exploring the motivation concept. Sources such as electronic literature indexes, textbooks, Internet search engines, and scholarly research articles can provide evidence-based information concerning motivation. Mostly, literature not older than five years will give more evident findings to study motivation.

Method

Eight concept-analysis steps of Walker and Avant (2019) to carry out a motivation analysis related to work engagement in healthcare.

Findings from Review of The Literature

In Ethiopia, motivation is attached to job satisfaction among healthcare providers in public hospitals. In research by Ayalew et al. (2019), the findings show th
