Metaparadigm of Nursing
A metaparadigm is a set of concepts that sets the foundation for developing theoretical frameworks. Nursing science has the main meta paradigms: person, environment, health, and nursing. The person receives nursing care and may include patients, individuals, communities, or groups (Nikfarid et al., 2018). The next concept is health, defined as the extent of wellness experienced by clients, while Nursing is the delivery of optimum healthcare outcomes through collaboration with clients (Kalogirou et al., 2020). The final concept is the environment, defined as external and internal surroundings that affect the client (Nikfarid et al., 2018).
The nursing theory I developed in week 2 was “To improve adherence to medication regimen the use of a medication dispensing system will improve compliance.” I then improved this theory to “A multifaceted approach and interventions that are specifically designed to the individual will improve long term adherence to the medication regimen.” I will improve this theory to include the four meta-paradigms of nursing. The new, improved theory states, “A multifaceted approach and interventions specifically designed to the individual will improve long term adherence to the medication regimen in African American ethnicity.”
In my theory, people will be subjected to multifaced approaches and interventions. They will be the recipient of nursing care. In my theory, the metaparadigm of nursing is the multifaceted approach and interventions. This is the application of evidence-based practice to improve patient outcomes. The environment concept is African American ethnicity. This is the social factor that may influence the medication adherence of patients. The metaparadigm of health, in my theory, is the improvement of medication adherence. This will help in the management of chronic conditions to improve patient well-being.

We’ll write everything from scratch
Use the theory that you developed in week two. Please improve it using the information you obtained in the intervening weeks. Use the Conceptual – Theoretical – Empirical Model (CTE) to link the operational definitions with the empirical indicators, theoretical concepts, and conceptual model components. Post your revised theory and explain how you would measure the concepts and propositions in a research study.
