Incorporate the theory’s underlying assumptions (including how metaparadigm concepts are defined).
Include the theory’s main concepts.
Include the theory’s major propositions.
Give examples of how the theory has been applied in the literature.
Explain how the theory will be put into practice at your institution (or how it will be used as a foundation, framework, etc.). This is a plan of action.

Conclusion: Contrast current practice with what would happen if theory guided practice.
