Creating a Concept Map
Provides an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the conceptual components of a theory. Building on this week’s Discussion, you will build a concept map to express the linkages and interrelationships of the concepts in the middle range theory you have selected.
Explore the various concept maps presented in Chapter 7 of The Practice of Nursing Research, as well as the Cooper and Veo articles.
Using the information presented in the Learning Resources as a guide, consider the linkages and interrelationships of the conceptual concepts for the theory you identified for this week’s Discussion. What relational statements could be articulated?
Theory identified for my discussion this week are: (1) Pender’s health promotion model from middle range theories and (2) Health belief model from behavioral science theories in my research ( PLS SEE ATTACHED PAPER FOR THE DISCUSSION PAPER)
Create a concept map demonstrating the linkages and interrelationships of the theoretical concepts. Include a clear problem and purpose statement.
Express relational statements linking the concepts, literally and diagrammatically. You may use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or another software application of your choice; however, if you use a product that is not part of the Microsoft Office Suite, you must be able to save it as a PDF or RTF file.

IMPORTANT: Include references from the literature to support your work.
You need heading, you do not need a running head, you should not have a one-sentence paragraph. Similarity index is fine.
