This new addition to Springer's Watson Science Caring Institute Library is the first international compendium of Caritas research. Presenting the findings of 41 studies from 12 countries, it examines similarities and differences in the ways in which countries apply Watson's Theory regarding relationships between nurses and patients, and nurses and their colleagues, and how it is used to resolve outcome issues system-wide. The book also includes the Caring Factor Survey, a primary research tool for those using the Caritas process, which identifies constructs that either support or impede caring in multiple settings. It is offered, along with five adaptations, for use as a written or digital adjunct. The volume serves as a complement to Watson's Assessing and Measuring Caring in Nursing and Health Care as well as the forthcoming Creating a Caring Science Curriculum: An Emancipatory Pedagogy for Nursing.
