Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nursing today is affected by challenges to the beliefs and values underlying the delivery of health care services. Results of a bibliometric analysis of the nursing literature since 1966 revealed a process of paradigm change in which a scientific medical model is being replaced by a model based on the concept of holism. Key ideas representing a holistic paradigm of health appear with increasing frequency in the journals of the nursing field, demonstrating the diffusion of a new and different perspective in the practice of nursing.
