Family theory interview project

The student will conduct an interview of a family who has or is experiencing a transitional, chronic, acute, or critical illness/disorder. Note: The family interview will be conducted electronically through Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, or other technology applications, or telephone. There will be no face to face meetings with the family members due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The purpose of the interview will be to explore:

  2. b) the challenges in managing the illness/disorder, and
  3. c) nursing approaches that are/were helpful to the family.


Based on an identified family nursing theory described in your text, course readings and research literature, develop a 12-page paper following APA format that focuses on:


  1. a) preparing a family interview guide,
  2. b) interviewing a family to explore concepts in the family nursing theory,
  3. c) recording family interview data and summarizing findings from the data,
  4. d) creating family level approaches based on interview data and proposing nursing             actions to the family based on SMART goals
  5. f) evaluating the effectiveness of the nursing actions,
  6. g) sending the therapeutic letter to the family as appropriate
  7. h) reflecting on the student-family follow through experience.


Cite at least six current (between 2005 and 2018-exceptions can always be made in dated for seminal articles of critical importance to the topic) nursing research studies to support your proposed family level approaches. Literature in addition to your textbooks and course materials is preferred. Please create fake names for the formal paper. Please refer to grading rubric located in the ‘Materials’ tab to dropdown Content for further clarification.
