The Framework of Systemic Organization
A Conceptual Approach to Families and Nursing



October 1995 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Friedemann's theory of nursing - a theory centred primarily on the family - is here presented for the first time in its entirety. She presents a clear description of the Framework of Systemic Organization, validation of the concepts through existing research findings, and case studies that explore the use of the framework with families. The book guides the reader towards a concept of nursing that unifies theory, clinical expertise and research in seeking to advocate and support health and well-being in each individual and family.
