Use the Conceptual – Theoretical – Empirical Model (CTE) to link the operational definitions with the empirical indicators with the theoretical concepts and the conceptual model components. Post your revised theory and explain how you would measure the concepts and proposition in a research study.

Conceptual, theoretical, and empirical models work together to determine the links factors such as social, external, internal, and botanical knowledge-based to determine the cause of individual health outcomes (Hall et al., 2015). For this discussion post, I will revise my theory of the previous week and explain how the concepts and proposition in research are measured. I will also link the models such as conceptual, theoretical, and empirical (CTE) components.
In week two, I discussed the theory of chronic heart failure (CHF) and the use of angiotensin-2 receptor blockers (ARBs) and the increase expectancy of life. Jean Watsonâ€™s philosophy on the conceptual framework in nursing is the science of caring. Watsonâ€™s focus includes treatment as a human being, the environment or society around and the perception and delivery of proper nursing care (Hall et al., 2015). As a nurse a priority goal is respecting the patient, treating them with dignity, and providing a healthy environment and delivery of knowledge in the way the patient can understand.
Connecting the models to deliver a concise proposition of care would include the theoretical concepts. In the second week, (Concept A) Medication compliance, including identifying patients who are least likely to comply. (Concept B), after identifying the patient that is least likely to comply, providing knowledge and education on the importance of compliance and help with barriers. Knowing the barriers and pinpointing the social determinants of health can reduce risk factors of non-compliance.
Empirical theory in a nursing realm includes measures such as fact based or evidence-based approaches (Wenner & Campbell, 2016). (Concept A) medication compliance, (Concept B) providing education and identifying barriers of medication adherence. Proposition include implementing fact-based research to care for the patient such as proper assessment, identification, and education. Concepts measured based on patient understanding, medication compliance (is the patient filling and picking up the medication on time). Is the patientâ€™s laboratory report within the normal range? These results measure quantitative and qualitative outcomes.
