Leininger’s Culture Care Diversity and Universality Theory: Classic and New Contributions

Leininger’s Culture Care Diversity and Universality Theory: Classic and New Contributions CHAPTER 1 Leininger’s Culture Care Diversity and Universality Theory Classic and New Contributions Hiba B. Wehbe-Alamah ABSTRACT Introduction: Nurses and other healthcare providers need theoretical knowledge and practical skills to provide the people they care for with culturally congruent, competent, and sensitive care. Recognizing this need, Madeleine M. Leininger endeavored over six decades to establish the discipline of transcultural nurs- ing. She developed a theory and research method designed to guide nurses to (a) understand cultural similarities and differences in how people care for them- selves and others during health, illness, disability, dying, and death, and (b) provide culturally congruent, competent, and sensitive care. Purpose: The pur- pose of this article is to provide a brief overview of Leininger’s theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality, also known as the Culture Care Theory (CCT), and the related Ethnonursing Research Method (ERM). New developments to the CCT and ERM will be described. The CCT contributions to theory devel- opment, research, and scholarship will be highlighted. Conclusion: Findings from transcultural studies may help nurses provide culturally congruent care to diverse individuals, families, and populations. © 2019 Springer Publishing Company http://dx.doi.org/10.1891/0739-6686.37.1 2 ANNUAL REVIEW OF NURSING RESEARCH INTRODUCTION In a world characterized by http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annual Review of Nursing Research Springer Publishing
