Beyond Resilience: A Concept Analysis of Human Flourishing in Adolescents and Young Adults With Cancer.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This article explores the concept of human flourishing in the context of adolescents and young adults with cancer, using Rodgers' Evolutionary Concept Analysis method. We describe flourishing in adolescents and young adults with cancer experience as a continuous and dynamic process of growth and maturity among intrapersonal, interpersonal, and person-environmental dimensions. Flourishing adolescents and young adults with cancer achieve internal integration, evoke positive changes in their environments, and ultimately create a harmonious and balanced existence with the outside world. Human flourishing can be a new health care goal that nurses can apply to this population.
