BOEHS, Astrid Eggert. An analysis of the negotiation/accomodation concepts in M. Leininger's theory. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2002, vol.10, n.1, pp. 90-96. ISSN 0104-1169. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692002000100014.
This work aims at clarifying the method of implementation of the negotiation/accommodation care preconized by Madeleine Leininger's theory concerning the Universality and Diversity of Care. The conceptual analysis technique is used as a tool to analyze the literature. It was verified that the concept of accommodation defines the idea of adaptation, of something passive, whilst in negotiation, each party commands resources and needs to be fulfilled. Among the different works which were analyzed and used Leininger's theory, only one showed to approach negotiation. As a conclusion, accommodation is considered to be different from negotiation, the former being more commonly seen in practice than the latter.
