The book discusses at length eight different Caring Factor surveys, primary research tools for those using the Caritas Processes®, which identify constructs that either support or impede caring in multiple settings. The first section focuses on the theoretical underpinnings of Caritas and presents seven adaptations of the Caring Factor Survey. Section 2 addresses measurements and methods for facilitating a caring relationship between nurse and patient. Measurements and interventions to facilitate Caritas in a variety of settings are the focus of Section 3, and the final sections address the international measurement and international comparisons of Caritas. The volume will be an important resource for nurse leaders, educators, administrators in academia including unit managers, and for hospitals with or seeking Magnet status. The book serves as a complement to Watson’s Assessing and Measuring Caring in Nursing and Health Sciences and Creating a Caring Science Curriculum: A Relational Emancipatory Pedagogy for Nursing.
