Problem and Purpose Statement
Diagnosisof HIV/AIDS is a problem in the nursing profession because it can bedevastating to the people and their families due to a multitude ofemotional, physical spiritual, and societal stresses that arise fromthe treatment, disruption of home and family roles, and the fears ofthe stigma. Therefore, the purpose of this concept map is to find outmore efficient ways of timely detection of the HIV/AIDS scourge andto develop a good orientation program to help the individuals comearound (Daley& Torre, 2010).This is based on the Newman’s theory of expanding healthconsciousness.
Linkages and interrelationships of Theoretical Concepts
Accordingto Newman theory, determination of health is not only based on thepresence or absence of a disease, but considers all individualsregardless of their positions, how disordered they are, and theirhealth situation to be part of the universal process of expandinghealth consciousness (Alligood,2014).The concepts in the theory that will be interrelated are time,environment, health precursors, debilitation cases, and chronicillnesses. The concept map aims at providing the key mitigationstrategies for the people facing uncertainty, debilitation, andhealth deterioration because of the HIV/AIDS scourge.
Theconcept map demonstrates the interrelatedness of time, space, andmovement to solve the problems affiliated to the chronic infection.Through this application, the concept map aims at synthesizing healthand illness (Reynald& Elffers, 2009).Through the integration of the primary parameters, the concept mapdemonstrates linkages and interrelationships of the theoreticalconcepts by mainly extrapolating the main ideas on humanconsciousness as the main parameter of health inclusivity in-depthanalysis. Through this, nurses can gauge more inclusive program tomanage many HIV/AIDS patients based on the theoretical concepts ofNewman’s theory and some of the propositions postulated (Vosniadou,2009).
