A situation-specific theory of Caucasian cancer patients' pain experience.
Situation-specific theories can explain a population's unique health/illness experience with a limited scope of generalizability, but with more specificity that can provide a more close and comprehensive view on and explanation of a nursing phenomenon. In this article, a situation-specific theory explaining the unique cancer pain experience of Caucasian cancer patients is presented, along with the theory development process that was taken to develop the theory. First, the method used to develop the theory is concisely described. Then, the theory development process is described step by step. Finally, the situation-specific theory that was developed through the process is presented.
