Infusing Swanson's Theory of Caring into an Advanced Practice Nursing Model for an Infectious Diseases Anal Dysplasia Clinic.
Summary of "Infusing Swanson's Theory of Caring into an Advanced Practice Nursing Model for an Infectious Diseases Anal Dysplasia Clinic."
The incidence of anal cancer is increasing among HIV-infected men and women. The process of screening for anal dysplasia and the management of abnormal findings are currently and most often based on a medical model. The needs of these patients, however, go well beyond medical care. A more comprehensive and holistic approach to health care is, therefore, required. Given the scope of practice of advanced practice nurses who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with anal dysplasia, it is appropriate for them to assume leadership roles in addressing the needs of these patients. This article describes the application of a theory of caring to create an advanced practice nursing model of care for HIV-infected men and women in infectious diseases anal dysplasia clinics.
