the client’s

perspective in the design and delivery of

care, and to create a sacred space for

carrying out the holistic caring process

thwarts achievement of the mutually sought

after goal of healing. By embracing the

broader and deeper view of care offered by

the theory of integral nursing, the nurse and

client collaborate in the development of

trusting relationships as they intentionally

strive to improve client outcomes and

ultimately enhance client, nurse, and

provider satisfaction with care.

Background

Pain management has remained enigmatic

for clients and healthcare professionals for

decades. When caring for clients, pain is the

most common symptom for which nurses

definition of pain, McCaffery’s definition

has gained substantial support over the past

30 years and is widely used in clinical
