  4. 4. The Seven Assumptions of the Theory of Human Caring 1. Caring can be effectively demonstrated and practiced only interpersonally. 2. Caring consists of curative factors that result in the satisfaction of certain human needs. 3. Effective caring promotes health and individual or family growth. 4. Caring responses accept person not only as he or she is now but as what he or she may become. 5. A caring environment is one that offers the development of potential while allowing the person to choose the best action for himself or herself at a given point in time. 6. Caring is more “ healthogenic” than is curing. A science of caring is complementary to the science of curing. 7. The practice of caring is central to nursing.
