  1. One step towards the understanding of hope : a concept analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Hope is an essential concept in nursing which has not been satisfactorily explored.

    The purpose of this article is to elucidate the concept of hope, using a technique of concept analysis described by Walker and Avant (1995).

    The critical attributes revealed were ; future-orientation, positive expectation, intentionality, activity, realism, goal-setting, and inter-connectedness.

    Various illustrative cases are presented as well as antecedents and outcomes.

    The discussion highlights some critical aspects of the method used and the results of this analysis may serve as a guide for further empirical research.

    In order to grasp the true nature of hope, complementary research studies employing a variety of methodological approaches are needed.
