<p>Objective: This study aimed to construct a new theoretical framework of providing care to diabetic patients so that they can make use of their embodied intelligence. This new construct is based on Benner’s nursing theory, in which the concept of care is a theoretical assumption.</p><p>Method: Meta-synthesis and interpretative phenomenology approaches were used in this study. We conducted a group discussion with nursing exemplars to extract the commonality in the meaning of care.</p><p>Results: The meta-synthesis of seven papers revealed four continuous nursing care categories: describing ambiguous experiences, deepening the understanding of the body, recovering trust in the body, and utilizing new coping methods. We integrated these categories and named them as “embodiment care for diabetic patients.”</p><p>Conclusion: Our new theoretical framework of nursing practice is based on the conclusion that embodiment care for diabetic patients enables them to have a sense of well-being, regain their everyday life by comforting their body, and become independent.</p>
