Abstract: Shattell seek to analyze the concept risk, an essential element of theory development and research, and provide a new definition of risk. A new definition of risk that emerged from her concept analysis can provide clarity and direction for future research. She further claims that nurse researchers can look to this definition to expand what is known about health-seeking behavior as opposed to "risk" behaviors and seek to further the understanding of the cognitive and experiential process of risk identification.
