International Journal for Human Caring


About us


In 1978, the National Caring Research Conference was conceived and initiated by Dr. Madeleine Leininger. The annual conference was designed to gather scholars together to share ideas, research, and theories of care and caring.

The core philosophy of the association is based on the belief that caring is the essence of nursing and caring is the unique and unifying focus of the profession.

The national organization began in 1987 through the generosity of 42 charter members. In 1989, with the encouragement of nurses from around the world, the conference association was changed to the International Association for Human Caring (IAHC) Inc.

The central purpose of the IAHC, Inc. is to serve as an international, scholarly forum for all nurses interested in the advancement of the knowledge of human care and caring within the discipline of nursing. In 1993, Drs. Leininger, Delores Gaut, and Malcom Mac Donald produced a video outlining the history and growth of the Association. In 1994, Dr. Leininger established the Leininger Research Scholarship Fund to assist in the financial support of nurse researchers studying the phenomenon of human care and caring.

Caring... The Essence of Nursing

 

Mission

 

The International Association for Human Caring (IAHC) provides the forum for discovery and dissemination of caring science.

Vision

 

Members of the IAHC believe:

  • Caring is the human mode of being
  • Caring is the essence of nursing and the moral imperative which guides nursing praxis (education, practice and research)
  • Caring is both spiritual and human consciousness that connects and transforms everything in the universe  Caring in nursing is action and competencies which aim toward the good and welfare of the others
    Caring in nursing is a special way of being, knowing and doing with the goal of protection, enhancement and preservation of human dignity
  • Care is culturally diverse and universal and provides the broadest and most important means to study and explain nursing knowledge and nursing care practices.

 

The goals of the IAHC are to:

  1. Identify major philosophical, epistemological and professional dimensions of care and caring to advance the body of knowledge that constitutes nursing.
  2. Assist nursing and other disciplines to use care and caring knowledge in human relationships and to facilitate the application of this knowledge to transform organizational systems in which nurses function to become care-focused.
  3. Explicate the nature, scope, and functions of care and caring and its relationship to nursing.
  4. Identify the major components, processes and patterns of care and caring in relationship to nursing from a transcultural nursing perspective.
  5. Stimulate nurse scholars and other professionals world-wide to systematically investigate care and caring and to share findings with colleagues at an annual research conference.
  6. Disseminate knowledge through refereed publications and public forums.
  7. Maintain an organization with elected officers and paid members for the purpose of maintaining a network of scholars.
