demonstrate the prospective value of the

theory’s application.

It is widely known that pain is one of the

most common symptoms experienced by all

clients and that knowledge about effective

pain-relieving strategies is important

and essential in guiding practice. Despite

numerous advances in pain management,

pain continues to be insufficiently managed.

Inadequate understanding and use of theory

to guide pain management practice may

knowledge as a basis for pain management

care. Insufficient knowledge about the

theory of integral nursing precludes

effective application of its theoretical

concepts in clinical practice, thereby

inhibiting nurses’ ability to improve pain

management practice while also inhibiting

clients’ ability to participate in the co-

creation of personalized interventions to

relieve pain. Failure of the nurse to engage
