Nursing Research at Malmo School of Education during the 1960's and 1970's: Results and Suggestions for Application.
Educational and Psychological Interactions, n111 Mar 1992
This report presents some results from various empirical research projects within nursing education carried out during the late 1960's and the early 1970's at Malmo School of Education, University of Lund (Sweden). It is noted that a wide range of methods has been used in dealing with the following issues: curriculum analysis; construction of attitude scales; exploring attitude structures; describing attitude changes during nursing education; work analysis by means of the critical incident method; and presentation of problem-situations and behavioral suggestions to be used as a basis for problem-based learning. The report is mainly confined to the following three themes: (1) work analyses by means of the critical incident method; (2) construction of attitude scales and mapping the structure of the attitude concept "patient-centeredness"; and (3) suggestions for application of the research results. In addition, some recent American nursing research, focusing on the same issues highlighted in the current research are presented and commented upon. Appendices include a list of citations to literature from which excerpts have been taken and reformulated into attitude items, instruction for semantic scaling, and methods of coding answers to questions. Contains 35 references. (GLR)
