Tiffany and Lutjens have reviewed, analyzed, and discussed implications to nursing practice of several change theories drawn from social sciences and other fields. This graduate-level book is organized in three parts: the first addresses basic considerations in planned change; the second, theory considerations in planned change; and the last part, planned change theory in practice. Emphasized is the need to develop a change theory that is specifically appropriate for nursing. The book provides a background of the works of Lewin, Bennis, Benne, Chinn, Rogers, and Bohla. Discussion is supported by extensive literature reviews and includes implications for development of nursing theory. Each chapter includes a set of questions to be answered, a list of key words and phrases used in the chapter, discussion, and a summary of key ideas presented. A reference list, varying in length and currency, follows each chapter. Appendixes provide an extensive glossary, the Tiffany-Lutjens Planned Change Theory Evaluation Model, sources of key planned change concepts, and an extensive reference list of planned change literature in nursing articles.
