Shared Theory
This article addresses the development of a shared theory based upon the Social
Cognitive Theory of Bandura and the Self Care Deficit Conceptual Model by Orem. This shared
theory development was done in efforts to improve nursing competence in palliative nursing

This article goes on to state that even though on the theoretical level, both the cognitive theory and the conceptual model fit the palliative care needs of self-competence and the influence of nursing interventions, empirical testing and further research to evaluate the effectiveness of this shared theory in the clinical as well as the classroom and training sessions needs to be conducted to prove that this theory will be a solid foundation for palliative care that enhances the competence of nurses.
