Final compilation of each measurement and its update resulted in the final matrix. To the best of my knowledge, the ordering of the instruments is chronological. In some instances there is ambiguity as to which instruments were developed first, since the date of publication—not the dates of developmental efforts—was the date selected for chronological ordering. However, earlier developmental dates are noted in the summary and matrix of each instrument, when available. The final section of the book provides a comprehensive blueprint matrix of all the instruments.

Here we can acknowledge that a context for research and use of measurement for the phenomenon of caring holds the foundational ontological, philosophical, and epistemological assumptions implied or made explicit; while those assumptions inform design and methods and data forms for a study, the “ontological paradigms within the discipline may be consistent with more than one epistemic paradigm” (Smith & Reeder, 1998, p. 34), allowing for both older and newly developed instruments, data forms, and combinations of qualitative and quantitative data that best capture the complexities of the nature and quality of human caring.
