Summary "Giving Voice to What We Know links Margaret Newman's Theory of Health as Expanding Consciousness (HEC) with nursing knowledge development, clinical practice, education and curriculum development, research, and nursing administration. At a time when nurses are increasingly asked to justify their contribution to clinical practice outcomes, Giving Voice to What We Know serves as a guide for nurses to do so by articulating their contributions to both immediate and long-term changes in healthcare. Written by nurses who teach, research, and practice within the theoretical framework of HEC, the text provides examples of theory-based practice models, as well as a variety of practical examples for using the model to create a partnership with patients - the essence of nursing."--BOOK JACKET.
