Leininger

 [li´nin-jer]
Madeleine M. Nursing theorist, author, educator, researcher, and consultant. She formulated the field of transcultural nursing in the mid 1950s and broadened the theoretical frameworks nurses use to care for individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds by developing the cultural care diversity and universality theory of nursing. She discovered that cultural aspects were the critical missing link in nursing knowledge and practice and has advanced the goal “that the cultural needs of people in the world will be met by nurses prepared in transcultural nursing” by numerous scholarly presentations, books, book chapters, and articles pertaining to transcultural nursing theory, practice, and research.
