Concept Analysis

Below are resources to assist you with your concept analysis assignment

Selection of appropriate search terms is very appropriate. We recommend connecting the term for your concept with any of these search terms using the Boolean operator AND. Also, truncate words using the * symbol to search for variant word endings. Here are some helpful search strategies to try:

  • compassion AND "concept analysis"
  • compassion AND philosoph*
  • compassion AND theor*
  • compassion AND defin*
  • compassion AND concept*
  • compassion AND (religious OR religion* OR theolog*)
  • compassion AND anthropolog*
  • compassion AND theor* AND psycholog*

Contemporary Concepts in Advanced Practice Roles

When reviewing scholarly literature (peer-reviewed), remember to check the publication date.

Don't forget to include a bibliography and check the gold APA citation tab for help if you need it.
