Purpose: To conduct a re-examination of the concept of partnership within the context of a professional-patient relationship, synthesize recent publications and provide direction for research.

Conceptual Framework: Partnership was previously reviewed by Gallant, Beaulieu and Carnevale (2002) and characterized as an immature concept, needing further consensus and consistency. Critical attributes previously reported include relationship, power sharing and negotiation with empowerment as the primary consequence.

Sample: Multidisciplinary literature published between 2000 and 2004 was searched using the keywords of "partnershipö and ôpartnering" combined with nurse/professional/physician-client relationship. The initial database search was conducted and yielded 147 citations for review. Citations referring to the word ôpartnershipö (rather than the concept) or legal or organizational partnerships were excluded from further analysis. Citations retained after the first review (N=62) included expert opinion, literature review, and research reports. Four classic papers were added to the sample for data abstraction and comparison.

Methods: The Rodgers' Evolutionary Method of analysis for concept development was used to re-examine the concept of partnership. Historical documents and previously published conceptual papers were reviewed for context. Attributes, uses, antecedents and consequences were inductively derived from the citations retained for analysis.

Results: Partnership involves a process with a consistent set of attributes. Relationship, shared power, shared decision-making and patient autonomy are attributes that distinguish partnership from other related concepts. Most of the literature, however, consists of expert opinion or descriptive research. Little progress has been made on constructing theory, developing tools to evaluate the process, when it is indicated and what specific outcomes occur when partnership is present.

Conclusion: Partnerships are designed to give patients greater voice and empower them to accept more responsibility for self-management. This analysis contributes to building the theoretical foundation to support future research on partnership that goes beyond description to association and hypothesis-testing. [Poster Presentation]
