BorrowedTheories in Nursing

TheTheory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as a borrowed concept in nursingapplies its frameworks in the aspect of patient safety. As anadvanced nursing issue, patient safety is the lack of avertable harmto an ill person during health care. Innately, TPB as anauthenticated behavioral management model has been applied toenvisage health and social behaviors (Javadi, Kadkhodaee, Yaghoubi,Maroufi, &amp Shams, 2013). In 2011, a study was done using a TPBframework to examine analysts of nurses’ patient safety behaviorand aims. The research applied binary logistic regression to assesshow good each TPB variable envisaged the discrepancy in patientsafety behavior. The study findings showed that “normative beliefs”presented a greater influence on nurses’ purpose to execute patientsafety behaviors (Javadi et al., 2013). Besides, analysis of data byworkplace wards and hospital types indicated that both in private andpublic hospitals normative beliefs had influenced safety behaviors ofnurses more as opposed to other variables (Javadi et al., 2013). Asnoted, in surgical wards, control beliefs had changed nurses’characters, while normative beliefs had the same effect in medicalwards. Such results show how TPB’s frameworks apply in the issue ofpatient safety
