Family Nursing Practice and Research with the Framework of Systemic Organization

Thursday, January 31, 2013 1:00pm EST (New York)

Presented by: Marie-Luise Friedemann PhD, RN

Marie-Luise Friedemann has developed the Framework of Systemic Organization as well as a family assessment instrument and theory-based treatment models. She has been working as a consultant in North and South America, and Europe, working with health care agencies that introduce theory-based methods of family nursing and with universities, individual faculty, and students who use the family assessment tool (translated and tested in several languages) for the conduct of research. Dr. Friedemann has published numerous articles on this framework as well as books in English and German. She regularly offers seminars and workshops internationally for practitioners and researchers.

Program / Event Description:

This seminar offers a brief introduction to the Framework of Systemic Organization. Key concepts are explained as they relate to the functioning of families and nursing. With an example, participants learn how theory-based family nursing is conducted in home health in Switzerland. This includes the family assessment, goal setting with the family, interventions, and evaluation. For researchers, examples describe the application of the framework in formulating hypotheses and designing quantitative and qualitative studies.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the session, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the concepts of the Framework of Systemic Organization.
  2. Apply the framework setting goals with families and coaching families toward better health.
  3. Use the theoretical concepts in formulating hypotheses and developing qualitative and quantitative research designs.
