Safe Passage: A Tripartite Progressive Agency Theory

Summary: A mixed method Constructivist grounded theory study was commenced in 2020 to explain Australian neonatal nurses’ professional quality of life. The study had three distinct but interrelated components: 1) a literature review, 2) a descriptive, cross-sectional survey, and 3) focus groups and interviews. Meta-inferences relating to personal and professional agency use to attain collective healthcare and wellness goals within a female-dominated workforce informed a middle-range theory. The Tripartite Progressive Agency Theory specifies the alterations in consciousness, voice, and action required to enable knowledge, skill, and acculturation flow between nurses and parents to overcome constraints and optimise personal and collective healthcare and wellness goals.
