The UFPP research method is well recognized as an appropriate method for conducting research guided by the science of unitary human beings (Barrett, 1998; Fawcett & Desanto-Madeya, 2013; Malinski, 2002; Parse, 2001; Phillips, 2000).
A priori nursing science means that the UFPP is a theory-driven approach to inquiry and the postulates and principles of the Science of Unitary Human Beings explicitly guides all aspects of inquiry, from identifying concepts appropriate for inquiry, to how the concept is initially defined and conceptualized, to what questions are asking of participants during data collection, and finally how the data are interpreted.
This allowed the researcher to describe the nature of power as knowing participation in change once the data were analyzed using the hermeneutic phenomenology research approach and Butcher's UFPP methodology.
The UFPP is expressed in the form of a vivid, rich, thick, alive, and accurate aesthetic rendition of the universal patterns, qualities, features, and themes exemplifying the essence of the dynamic kaleidoscopic and symphonic nature of the phenomenon of concern (Butcher, 2005).
The last element in UFPP research method is the development of the theoretical UFPP.
The key assumptions underpinning the UFPP research method are: (1) the researcher and researched-into are integral and en gaged in mutual process; (2) human beings can describe their own experiences, perceptions, and expressions in ways that uncover an understanding of a particular phenomenon; (3) experiences, perceptions, and expressions are unitary pattern manifestations emerging from the human/environmental energy field mutual process; and (4) the Unitary Field Pattern Portrait of an experience related to human betterment reflects the dynamic kaleidoscopic and symphonic human/environmental field mutual process.
The focus of inquiry in the UFPP research method are irreducible human energy fields in mutual process with their environmental energy fields.
Processes of the UFPP research method (see Table 1) are described below and include: initial engagement, a priori nursing science, immersion, pattern appraisal, unitary field pattern profile construction, mutual unitary field pattern profile construction, unitary field pattern portrait construction, and theoretical unitary field pattern portrait construction.
The processes and conclusions of a study using the UFPP research method are presented in a format emphasizing the unitary and creative aspects of the inquiry.
The final phase of the (UFPP) research method was the construction of the theoretical unitary field pattern portrait.
The intent of this researcher was to investigate dispiritedness in later life using the (UFPP) research method to: expand nursing science; contribute to the development of Rogers' Science of Unitary Human Beings; and to expand Rogers' nursing science for guiding practice by enhancing an understanding of dispiritedness in later life.
The research methodology used in this study was the first application of the (UFPP) research method.
