The term psychosocial health encompasses a variety of defi nitions and references among diff erent disciplines, and it is widely used in various settings within the health professions and health sciences; however, the term is diffi cult to conceptualize, which has led to its random and unspecifi ed usage. To bring clarity to use of this term, a concept analysis was conducted. After a careful selection process, 15 articles, including those with their primary published defi nition, were analyzed and synthesized. The central attributes of the concept of psychosocial health were identifi ed, and an overarching defi nition addressing its various aspects was proposed. The resulting defi nition is comprehensive and applicable to a variety of disciplines within the health rofessions. The defi nition provides a new understanding and increased clarity for this complex term. Importantly, it will also assist in promoting the psychosocial health of patients as well as health professionals.
