Peer 1 Kolcalbas Theory of Comfort Katherine Kolcabas Theory of Comfort recognizes that an important concept that needs to be addressed in a patients care is comfort. Comfort is defined by Kolcaba as not only physical, such as pain, but spiritually, socially, and environmentally. According to Peterson and Bredow (2017), nurses traditionally cared for the comfort of the patient, and in the past was one of the sole focuses of the nurse before advancements in medicine. Currently comfort is majorly addressed in both nursing home settings and hospice. What is the phenomenon of Concern? The main phenomenon of concern when it comes to this theory is comfort. Ensuring that the patient is not only physically comfortable but comfortable in other ways. There are three other areas of comfort that this theory addresses, psychospiritual, social comfort, which later became sociocultural, and environmental comfort (Peterson & Bredow, 2017). Psychospiritual, addresses the patients awareness of self, their spirituality, and even sexuality. Sociocultural, addresses the need to address cultural issue that may interfere with care of the patient, and even their relationship with family. Finally, Environmental addresses things such as the amount of noise, light, temperature of where the patient is being given care. In a study by Barreto et al. (2020), they state that hospitalization is an unpleasant experience for older people and can increase frailty, making them more susceptible to suffering and discomfort and potentially impairing their recovery. Addressing these needs would allow for an increase in positive outcomes. What are the assumptions underpinning this theory? There are three distinct assumptions made in this theory that are as follows: Human beings have holistic responses to complex stimuli. Comfort is an immediate and desirable holistic state of human beings that is germane to the discipline of nursing. Human beings strive to meet, or to have met, their basic comfort needs. It is an active endeavor (Peterson & Bredow, 2017). As a community nurses generally base care on physical needs, and not necessarily needs in any of the other areas of comfort. In the study done by Berreto et al. (2020), they found that out of the 26 nursing diagnoses that they looked at, only four of those nursing diagnoses address a need outside of the physical dimension.

Peer 2 Discussion 3- Penders Health Promotion Model In the text author Butts (2017 p.425) describes Nola Penders Health Promotion Model as one of four theories that may be categorized as focusing on goals and functions. This classification of Penders theory allows it to be qualified and quantified, which has therefore led to a broad spectrum of research. Butts goes on to describe Penders theory as a multidimensionality of persons interacting with their interpersonal and physical environments as they pursue health (2017 p. 445) The understanding of this theory is that it addresses the metaparadigms by acknowledging the patient or client, seeking health which can be determined by an illness, injury, or prevention, being guided, and educated by an advanced practice nurse, in the environment of choice. The promotion of health is vital to the campaign for better health or fight against chronic disease. No matter which outcome you seek, this model can provide measurable ways to track efficacy. In one article written by authors Da Silva Santos et al., (2018), the research is described how they utilize the Pender Health Promotion Model, which provides a simple and clear structure, allows for the planning, intervention and evaluation of actions of Nursing. (Da Silva Santos et al 2018, p. 583) This article measured how effectively advanced nursing interventions were in relation to HPV vaccinations and education in schools. The Health Promotion Model was used to quantify research and understand if the education was productive in lowering incidences of HPV. (Da Silva Santos et al 2018, p. 583) This article along with many others uses a myriad of different health conditions to follow trends and efficacy to better provide health promotion. There are assumptions to this model. To assure the accuracy of the data collected in researching this model, it is typically assumed that participants intend to follow the education and direction of the advanced practitioner, that there is no veering from the plan, and that all other things equal, the data inferred is correct. These can sometimes be large assumptions, however for the greater good of the population, such assumptions must be made. References: Butts, J. B. (2017).
