According to Watson, 1979, concept of caring is one of the least understood ideas used by professionals. Morrison, (1991) endorsed the same by meeting the caring concept remains a poorly defined concept in nursing practice. The purpose of this study is to find out the operational and conceptual definitions of the term “caring” in Pakistani culture, from clients’ and health care teams’ point of view. We will also find out what our clients are expecting from the health care team. Thus this study will explore the “Perceptions of Caring” of patients, nurses, physicians and administrators at AKUH. The is study will have descriptive and qualitative approach in order to enhance the understanding of the subjective feelings of clients and health care team members regarding this phenomena. This will also give an overview of work related concepts of caring in the view of patients, nurses physicians and administrators. The study will be conducted at AKUH of Adult General and Medical Surgical Units, sample size for patients and nurses will be 10 each, 5 physicians and 5 administrators will be taken as sample. Patients will be selected on random basis through medical record numbers and nurses through monthly roster. Administrators and physicians will be selected on convenient basis. Two types of questionnaire will be introduced which have been adapted and modified from “Caring Ability Inventory Open Ended Questionnaire by Ngozi O Nkongho, 1990”. Validity and reliability of this instrument is satisfactorily pre-established. Data will be collected through one to one interviewing and recorded through written and verbatim. Data will be analyzed by content analysis of different themes, which will emerge from the interviews. It is proposed that through the results we will compare patients and staff perceptions of caring which would be culturally based. This will also help in developing teaching and educational modules on caring for nursing staff.
