Critically examines perspectives in nursing and interdisciplinary fields relevant to phenomena associated with human responses to illness events, in particular chronic illness. Emphasis on variations on the conceptualization of these phenomena across health care disciplines and the relationship to assumptions underlying nursing science. Issues pertinent to measurement strategies and construct validity for these concepts as well as respondent burden within this population will be addressed. Practice implications evolving from the synthesis of this knowledge will be explored.
