Empowerment and Authorization - Who Provides and Who Receives?: A Qualitative Meta-study of Empowerment in Nursing research. A Caring Perspective.

Abstract [en]

The findings show how different conceptions of power occur within nursing science, differences that can be interpreted as different views of human beings and ethics. Among the advocates of empowerment in caring, there is a desire to eliminate the difference in power between nurse and patient The relationship between nurse and patient becomes mutual through the patient's participation in and responsibility for his/her own care. But from a caring science perspective, a caring relationship is not mutual since nurse and patient cannot change places due to being on different levels nor can responsibility be delegated from nurse to patient.
