Nursing science is contributing substantial evidence to inform the care of persons with dementia. Yet, greater effort is needed to illuminate what remains unknown. Moreover, extensive effort is still required to apply the knowledge gained to practice and policy in dementia care. Intended as a landmark in the evolution of the nursing science for dementia care, this paper presents an assessment of the current relevant scientific literature. Content analysis techniques were used to abstract substantive and syntactical elements from extant empirical studies of functioning, behavior, and quality of life for persons with dementia. Elements were next summarized as to scope and rigor of the work as a body of scientific knowledge. Results are presented in terms of substantive priorities and methodological challenges to be addressed in the design and conduct of future nursing studies in this field. Based on the substantive and syntactical elements reflected in this body of knowledge, on the nature of nursing as a science and discipline, and on the author’s scientific experience, suggestions are offered for improving the meaningfulness, quality, and applicability of future empirical research to nursing practice and health policy pertaining to persons with dementia.
