Research: WARDELL and ENGEBRETSO

Listed in Issue 32

Abstract

WARDELL and ENGEBRETSON, School of Nursing, University of Texas Houston Health Science Center, USA write that technological advances and economic, social and cultural conditions have created a climate of change in health care and that new roles and approaches are being developed in relation to the holistic health profession.

Background

Methodology

Results

Within the holistic nursing community three concepts of holistic practice have emerged. The authors describe for purposes of promoting future discussions the differentiations among 1) certified holistic nurses 2) practitioners of a healing modality and 3) healers.

Conclusion

Because new roles must match a social need and become institutionalised in order to secure a professional role, the authors speculate regarding possible directions for the certification in holistic nursing.
