  • In the lecture for the week, a theory was identified. “Knowledge as a component of the sociocultural orientation basic conditioning factor enhances prevention of hazards” is a theory from a major nursing framework.  Identify the framework and provide an example of how other applications of this theory may occur in nursing practice. For example, you may say that education may enhance the reduction of free throw rugs in an elderly persons home which will prevent falls.  Tie the concepts together by clearly defining them and how they could be measured.
