Swanson’s Theory of Caring was explored in view of developing a theoretical framework for the research study entitled ‘effect of structured nursing care rounds on selected nursing quality indicators’. Swanson’s Theory of Caring is structured around five caring principles that encompass the overall definition of caring in nursing practice. This theory states that caring proceeds in a sequence of five categories: knowing, being with, doing for, enabling, and maintaining belief. When applied to nursing practice, each of these five stages stimulates the caregiver’s attitude and improves the overall patient well-being. The theory aims at helping nursing personnel to deliver care that promotes dignity, respect, and empowerment. This model was framed to ensure consistent caring behaviours which would in turn improve patient satisfaction.
