Abstract

Patient enablement after consultations has not yet been adequately investigated among patients of nurse practitioners (NP) in primary health care. The lens of enablement and a qualitative parallel multistrand approach were used to explore patients’ experiences and NPs’ perspectives of consultations. Metainferences made from this study suggest NPs enable patients by creating opportunities for education and knowledge transference and building on patients’ strengths and promoting self-efficacy. Three existential components of the experience of consultations (ie, relationality, temporality, and corporality) also played a role. These findings were used to develop a conceptual framework of how patient enablement is experienced within an NP consultation.
