  1. 1. 1. Theory of Interpersonal RelationsThis page was last updated on October 27, 2011IntroductionAbout the theoristHildegard. E. PeplauBorn in Reading, Pennsylvania [1909], USADiploma program in Pottstown, Pennsylvania in 1931.BA in interpersonal psychology - Bennington College in 1943.MA in psychiatric nursing from Colombia University New York in 1947.EdD in curriculum development in 1953.Professor emeritus from Rutgers universityStarted first post baccalaureate program in nursingPublished Interpersonal Relations in Nursing in 19521968 :interpersonal techniques-the crux of psychiatric nursingWorked as executive director and president of ANA.Worked with W.H.O, NIMH and Nurse Corps.Died in 1999.Major ConceptsTheory of interpersonal relations is a middle range descriptive classification theory.The theory was influenced by Harry Stack Sullivans theory of inter personal relations (1953).The theorist was also influenced by Percival Symonds, Abraham Maslows and Neal Elger Miller.Peplaus theory is also refered as psychodynamic nursing, which is the understanding of ones ownbehavior.The theory explains the purpose of nursing is to help others identify their felt difficulties.Nurses should apply principles of human relations to the problems that arise at all levels ofexperience.Peplaus theory explains the phases of interpersonal process, roles in nursing situations and methods 1
  2. 2. for studying nursing as an interpersonal process.Nursing is therapeutic in that it is a healing art, assisting an individual who is sick or in need of healthcare.Nursing is an interpersonal process because it involves interaction between two or more individualswith a common goal.The attainment of goal is achieved through the use of a series of steps following a series of pattern.The nurse and patient work together so both become mature and knowledgeable in the process.DefinitionsPerson: A developing organism that tries to reduce anxiety caused by needs.Environment : Existing forces outside the organism and in the context of cultureHealth : A word symbol that implies forward movement of personality and other ongoing humanprocesses in the direction of creative, constructive, productive, personal andcommunity living.Nursing: A significant therapeutic interpersonal process. It functions cooperatively with other humanprocess that make health possible for individuals in communitiesRoles of nurseStranger: receives the client in the same way one meets a stranger in other life situations providesan accepting climate that builds trust.Teacher: who imparts knowledge in reference to a need or interestResource Person : one who provides a specific needed information that aids in the understanding ofa problem or new situationCounselors : helps to understand and integrate the meaning of current life circumstances ,providesguidance and encouragement to make changesSurrogate: helps to clarify domains of dependence interdependence and independence and acts onclients behalf as an advocate.Leader : helps client assume maximum responsibility for meeting treatment goals in a mutuallysatisfying wayAdditional Roles include:1. Technical expert2. Consultant3. Health teacher4. Tutor5. Socializing agent6. Safety agent 2

ResearcherPhases of interpersonal relationshipIdentified four sequential phases in the interpersonal relationship:1. Orientation2. Identification3. Exploitation4. ResolutionOrientation phaseProblem defining phaseStarts when client meets nurse as strangerDefining problem and deciding type of service neededClient seeks assistance ,conveys needs ,asks questions, shares preconceptions and expectations ofpast experiencesNurse responds, explains roles to client, helps to identify problems and to use available resourcesand servicesFactors influencing orientation phaseIdentification phaseSelection of appropriate professional assistancePatient begins to have a feeling of belonging and a capability of dealing with the problem whichdecreases the feeling of helplessness and hopelessnessExploitation phase 3
  4. 4. Use of professional assistance for problem solving alternativesAdvantages of services are used is based on the needs and interests of the patientsIndividual feels as an integral part of the helping environmentThey may make minor requests or attention getting techniquesThe principles of interview techniques must be used in order to explore, understand and adequatelydeal with the underlying problemPatient may fluctuates on independenceNurse must be aware about the various phases of communicationNurse aids the patient in exploiting all avenues of help and progress is made towards the final stepResolution phaseTermination of professional relationshipThe patients needs have already been met by the collaborative effect of patient and nurseNow they need to terminate their therapeutic relationship and dissolve the links between them.Sometimes may be difficult for both as psychological dependence persistsPatient drifts away and breaks bond with nurse and healthier emotional balance is demonstratedand both becomes mature individualsInterpersonal theory and nursing processBoth are sequential and focus on therapeutic relationshipBoth use problem solving techniques for the nurse and patient to collaborate on, with the endpurpose of meeting the patients needsBoth use observation communication and recording as basic tools utilized by nursingAssessment OrientationData collection and analysis Non continuous data collection[continuous] Felt needMay not be a felt need Define needsNursing diagnosis IdentificationPlanning Interdependent goal settingMutually set goals 4

  6. 6. LimitationsIntra family dynamics, personal space considerations and community social service resources areconsidered less.Health promotion and maintenance were less emphasizedCannot be used in a patient who doesn’t have a felt need eg. With drawn patients, unconsciouspatientsSome areas are not specific enough to generate hypothesisResearch Based on Peplau’s TheoryHays .D. (1961).Phases and steps of experimental teaching to patients of a concept of anxiety:Findings revealed that when taught by the experimental method, the patients were able to apply theconcept of anxiety after the group was terminated.Burd .S.F.

Virginia Hendersons Need TheoryThis page was last updated on October 28, 2011“Nursing theories mirror different realities, throughout their development; they reflected theinterests of nurses of that time.”Introduction“The Nightingale of Modern Nursing”“Modern-Day Mother of Nursing.”"The 20th century Florence Nightingale."Born in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1897.Diploma in Nursing from the Army School of Nursing at Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, D.C. in1921.Worked at the Henry Street Visiting Nurse Service for 2 years after graduation.In 1923, started teaching nursing at the Norfolk Protestant Hospital in VirginiaIn 1929, entered Teachers College at Columbia University for Bachelor’s Degree in 1932, Master’sDegree in 1934. 6
  7. 7. Joined Columbia as a member of the faculty, remained until 1948.Since 1953, a research associate at Yale University School of Nursing.Recipient of numerous recognitions.Her work influenced the nursing profession throughout the world.honorary doctoral degrees from the Catholic University of America, Pace University, University ofRochester, University of Western Ontario, Yale University In 1985, honored at the Annual Meeting of the Nursing and Allied Health Section of the MedicalLibrary Association.Died: March 19, 1996.In 1939, she revised: Harmer’s classic textbook of nursing for its 4th edition, and later wrote the 5th;edition, incorporating her personal definition of nursing (Henderson,1991)Henderson’s Theory BackgroundHenderson’s concept of nursing was derived form her practice and education therefore, her work isinductive..She called her definition of nursing her “concept” (Henderson1991)She emphasized the importance of increasing the patient’s independence so that progress afterhospitalization would not be delayed (Henderson,1991)Virginia Henderson defined nursing as "assisting individuals to gain independence in relation to theperformance of activities contributing to health or its recovery" (Henderson, 1966).She categorized nursing activities into 14 components, based on human needs.She described the nurses role as substitutive (doing for the person), supplementary (helping theperson), complementary (working with the person), with the goal of helping the person become asindependent as possible.Her definition of nursing was one of the first statements clearly delineating nursing frommedicine:"The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of thoseactivities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaidedif he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gainindependence as rapidly as possible" (Henderson, 1966).The 14 components 1. Breathe normally. 2. Eat and drink adequately. 3. Eliminate body wastes. 7
  8. 8. 4. Move and maintain desirable postures. 5. Sleep and rest. 6. Select suitable clothes-dress and undress. 7. Maintain body temperature within normal range by adjusting clothing and modifying environment 8. Keep the body clean and well groomed and protect the integument 9. Avoid dangers in the environment and avoid injuring others. 10. Communicate with others in expressing emotions, needs, fears, or opinions. 11. Worship according to one’s faith. 12. Work in such a way that there is a sense of accomplishment. 13. Play or participate in various forms of recreation. 14. Learn, discover, or satisfy the curiosity that leads to normal development and health and use the available health facilities.The first 9 components are physiological. The tenth and fourteenth are psychological aspects ofcommunicating and learning The eleventh component is spiritual and moral The twelfth andthirteenth components are sociologically oriented to occupation and recreationAssumptionThe major assumptions of the theory are:"Nurses care for patients until patient can care for themselves once again. Patients desire to returnto health, but this assumption is not explicitly stated.Nurses are willing to serve and that “nurses will devote themselves to the patient day and night” Afinal assumption is that nurses should be educated at the university level in both arts and sciences.Henderson’s theory and the four major concepts1. IndividualHave basic needs that are component of health.Requiring assistance to achieve health and independence or a peaceful death.Mind and body are inseparable and interrelated.Considers the biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual components.The theory presents the patient as a sum of parts with biopsychosocial needs, and the patient isneither client nor consumer.2. EnvironmentSettings in which an individual learns unique pattern for living.All external conditions and influences that affect life and development.Individuals in relation to families 8
  9. 9. Minimally discusses the impact of the community on the individual and family.Supports tasks of private and public agencies Society wants and expects nurses to act for individualswho are unable to function independently. In return she expects society to contribute to nursingeducation.Basic nursing care involves providing conditions under which the patient can perform the 14activities unaided3. HealthDefinition based on individual’s ability to function independently as outlined in the 14 components.Nurses need to stress promotion of health and prevention and cure of disease.Good health is a challenge. Affected by age, cultural background, physical, and intellectualcapacities, and emotional balance Is the individual’s ability to meet these needs independently?4. NursingTemporarily assisting an individual who lacks the necessary strength, will and knowledge to satisfy 1or more of 14 basic needs.Assists and supports the individual in life activities and the attainment of independence.Nurse serves to make patient “complete” “whole", or "independent."Hendersons classic definition of nursing:"I say that the nurse does for others what they would do for themselves if they had the strength, thewill, and the knowledge. But I go on to say that the nurse makes the patient independent of him orher as soon as possible."The nurse is expected to carry out physician’s therapeutic plan Individualized care is the result of thenurse’s creativity in planning for care.Use nursing researchCategorized Nursing : nursing careNon nursing: ordering supplies, cleanliness and serving food.In the Nature of Nursing “ that the nurse is and should be legally, an independent practitioner andable to make independent judgments as long as s/he is not diagnosing, prescribing treatment fordisease, or making a prognosis, for these are the physicians function.”“Nurse should have knowledge to practice individualized and human care and should be a scientificproblem solver.”In the Nature of Nursing Nurse role is,” to get inside the patient’s skin and supplement his strengthwill or knowledge according to his needs.” 9
  10. 10. And nurse has responsibility to assess the needs of the individual patient, help individual meet theirhealth need, and or provide an environment in which the individual can perform activity unaidedHendersons classic definition of nursing "I say that the nurse does for others what they would do forthemselves if they had the strength, the will, and the knowledge.But I go on to say that the nurse makes the patient independent of him or her as soon as possible."Henderson’s and Nursing Process”Summarization of the stages of the nursing process as applied to Henderson’s definition of nursingand to the 14 components of basic nursing care.Nursing Process Henderson’s 14 components and definition of nursingNursing Henderson’s 14 componentsAssessmentNursing Diagnosis Analysis: Compare data to knowledge base of health and disease.Nursing plan Identify individual’s ability to meet own needs with or without assistance, taking into consideration strength, will or knowledge.Nursing Document how the nurse can assist the individual, sick or well.implementationNursing Assist the sick or well individual in to performance of activities in meetingimplementation human needs to maintain health, recover from illness, or to aid in peaceful death.Nursing process Implementation based on the physiological principles, age, cultural background, emotional balance, and physical and intellectual capacities. Carry out treatment prescribed by the physician.Nursing evaluation Henderson’s 14 components and definition of nursing Use the acceptable definition of ;nursing and appropriate laws related to the practice of nursing. The quality of care is drastically affected by the preparation and native ability of the nursing personnel rather that the amount of hours of care. Successful outcomes of nursing care are based on the speed with which or degree to which the patient performs independently the activities of daily livingComparison with Maslows Hierarchy of Need 10
  11. 11. Maslows Henderson Breathe normallyPhysiological Eat and drink adequately Eliminate by all avenues of elimination Move andneeds maintain desirable posture Sleep and rest Select suitable clothing Maintain body temperature Keep body clean and well groomed and protect the integumentSafety Needs Avoid environmental dangers and avoid injuring otherBelongingness and Communicate with otherslove needs worship according to ones faith Work at something providing a sense of accomplishmentEsteem needs Play or participate in various forms of recreation Learn, discover, or satisfy curiosityCharacteristic of Henderson’s theoryThere is interrelation of concepts in such a way as to create a different way of looking at a particularphenomenon.Concepts of fundamental human needs, biophysiology, culture, and interaction, communication areborrowed from other discipline.Eg.. Maslow’s Hierarchy of human needs; concept of interaction-communication i.e. nurse-patient relationshipHer definition and components are logical and the 14 components are a guide for the individual andnurse in reaching the chosen goal.Theories should be relatively simple yet generalizable.Her work can be applied to the health of individuals of all ages.Theories can be the bases for hypotheses that can be tested. Her definition of nursing cannot beviewed as theory; therefore, it is impossible to generate testable hypotheses.However some questions to investigate the definition of nursing and the 14 components may beuseful.Theories contribute to and assist in increasing the general body of knowledge within the disciplinethrough the research implemented to validate them.Her ideas of nursing practice are well accepted throughout the world as a basis for nursing care. 11
  12. 12. However, the impact of the definition and components has not been established through research.Theories can be utilized by practitioners to guide and improve their practice.Ideally the nurse would improve nursing practice by using her definition and 14 components toimprove the health of individuals and thus reduce illness.UsefulnessNursing education has been deeply affected by Henderson’s clear vision of the functions of nurses.The principles of Henderson’s theory were published in the major nursing textbooks used from the1930s through the 1960s, and the principles embodied by the 14 activities are still important inevaluating nursing care in thee21st centaury.Others concepts that Henderson (1966) proposed have been used in nursing education from the1930s until the present OMalley, 1996)LimitationsLack of conceptual linkage between physiological and other human characteristics.No concept of the holistic nature of human being.If the assumption is made that the 14 components prioritized, the relationship among thecomponents is unclear.Lacks inter-relate of factors and the influence of nursing care.Assisting the individual in the dying process she contends that the nurse helps, but there is littleexplanation of what the nurse does.“Peaceful death” is curious and significant nursing role.ConclusionHenderson provides the essence of what she believes is a definition of nursing.She didn’t intend to develop a theory of nursing but rather she attempted to define the unique focusof nursing.Her emphasis on basic human needs as the central focus of nursing practice has led to further theorydevelopment regarding the needs of the person and how nursing can assist in meeting those needs.Her definition of nursing and the 14 components of basic nursing care are uncomplicated and self-explanatory 3.

  13. 13. INTRODUCTIONDorothea Orem (1914-2007)One of foremost nursing theorists.Born 1914 in Baltimore.Earned her diploma at Providence Hospital – Washington, DC1939 – BSN Ed., Catholic University of America1945 – MSN Ed., Catholic University of AmericaInvolved in nursing practice, nursing service, and nursing educationDuring her professional career, she worked as a staff nurse, private duty nurse, nurse educator andadministrator and nurse consultantReceived honorary Doctor of Science degree in 1976Published first formal articulation of her ideas in Nursing: Concepts of Practicein 197, second in1980, and in 1995.DEVELOPMENT OF THEORY1949-1957 Orem worked for the Division of Hospital and Institutional Services of the Indiana StateBoard of Health.Her goal was to upgrade the quality of nursing in general hospitals throughout the state. During thistime she developed her definition of nursing practice.1959 Orem subsequently served as acting dean of the school of Nursing and as an assistantprofessor of nursing education at CUA. She continued to develop her concept of nursing and selfcare during this time.Orem’s Nursing: Concept of Practice was first published in 1971 and subsequently in 1980, 1985,1991, 1995, and 2001.MAJOR ASSUMPTIONSPeople should be self-reliant and responsible for their own care and others in their family needingcarePeople are distinct individualsNursing is a form of action – interaction between two or more personsSuccessfully meeting universal and development self-care requisites is an important component ofprimary care prevention and ill health 13
  14. 14. A person’s knowledge of potential health problems is necessary for promoting self-care behaviorsSelf care and dependent care are behaviors learned within a socio-cultural contextDEFINITIONS OF DOMAIN CONCEPTSNursing – is art, a helping service, and a technologyActions deliberately selected and performed by nurses to help individuals or groups under their careto maintain or change conditions in themselves or their environmentsEncompasses the patient’s perspective of health condition ,the physician’s perspective , and thenursing perspectiveGoal of nursing – to render the patient or members of his family capable of meeting the patient’sself care needsTo maintain a state of healthTo regain normal or near normal state of health in the event of disease or injuryTo stabilize ,control ,or minimize the effects of chronic poor health or disabilityHealth – health and healthy are terms used to describe living things …It is when they are structurally and functionally whole or sound … wholeness or integrity. .includesthat which makes a person human,…operating in conjunction with physiological andpsychophysiological mechanisms and a material structure and in relation to and interacting withother human beingsEnvironmentenvironment components are enthronement factors, enthronement elements, conditions, anddeveloped environmentHuman being – has the capacity to reflect, symbolize and use symbolsConceptualized as a total being with universal, developmental needs and capable of continuous selfcareA unity that can function biologically, symbolically and sociallyNursing clientA human being who has "health related /health derived limitations that render him incapable ofcontinuous self care or dependent care or limitations that result in ineffective / incomplete care.A human being is the focus of nursing only when a self –care requisites exceeds self care capabilitiesNursing problem 14

Theory of Self CareThis theory Includes:Self care – practice of activities that individual initiates and perform on their own behalf inmaintaining life ,health and well beingSelf care agency – is a human ability which is "the ability for engaging in self care" -conditioned byage developmental state, life experience sociocultural orientation health and available resourcesTherapeutic self care demand – "totality of self care actions to be performed for some duration inorder to meet self care requisites by using valid methods and related sets of operations and actions"Self care requisites - action directed towards provision of self care. 3 categories of self carerequisites are-Universal self care requisitesDevelopmental self care requisitesHealth deviation self care requisites1. Universal self care requisitesAssociated with life processes and the maintenance of the integrity of human structure andfunctioningCommon to all , ADL 15
  16. 16. Identifies these requisites as:Maintenance of sufficient intake of air ,water, foodProvision of care assoc with elimination processBalance between activity and rest, between solitude and social interactionPrevention of hazards to human life well being andPromotion of human functioning2. Developmental self care requisitesAssociated with developmental processes/ derived from a condition…. Or associated with an eventE.g. adjusting to a new jobadjusting to body changes3. Health deviation self careRequired in conditions of illness, injury, or disease .these include:--Seeking and securing appropriate medical assistanceBeing aware of and attending to the effects and results of pathologic conditionsEffectively carrying out medically prescribed measuresModifying self concepts in accepting oneself as being in a particular state of health and in specificforms of health careLearning to live with effects of pathologic conditionsB. Theory of self care deficitSpecifies when nursing is neededNursing is required when an adult (or in the case of a dependent, the parent) is incapable or limitedin the provision of continuous effective self care. Orem identifies 5 methods of helping:Acting for and doing for othersGuiding othersSupporting anotherProviding an environment promoting personal development in relation to meet future demandsTeaching anotherC. Theory of Nursing Systems 16
  17. 17. Describes how the patient’s self care needs will be met by the nurse , the patient, or bothIdentifies 3 classifications of nursing system to meet the self care requisites of the patient:-Wholly compensatory systemPartly compensatory systemSupportive – educative systemDesign and elements of nursing system defineScope of nursing responsibility in health care situationsGeneral and specific roles of nurses and patientsReasons for nurses’ relationship with patients andThe kinds of actions to be performed and the performance patterns and nurses’ and patients’actions in regulating patients’ self care agency and in meeting their self care demandOrem recognized that specialized technologies are usually developed by members of the healthprofessionA technology is systematized information about a process or a method for affecting some desiredresult through deliberate practical endeavor ,with or without use of materials or instrumentsCategories of technologies1. Social or interpersonalCommunication adjusted to age, health statusMaintaining interpersonal, intra group or inter group relations for coordination of effortsMaintaining therapeutic relationship in light of psychosocial modes of functioning in health anddiseaseGiving human assistance adapted to human needs ,action abilities and limitations2. Regulatory technologiesMaintaining and promoting life processesRegulating psycho physiological modes of functioning in health and diseasePromoting human growth and developmentRegulating position and movement in spaceOREM’S THEORY AND NURSING PROCESSOrem’s approach to the nursing process presents a method to determine the self care deficits and 17
  18. 18. then to define the roles of person or nurse to meet the self care demands.The steps within the approach are considered to be the technical component of the nursing process.Orem emphasizes that the technological component "must be coordinated with interpersonal andsocial processes within nursing situations.Comparison of Orem’s Nursing Process and the Nursing ProcessNursing Process Orem’s Nursing.

Levines Four Conservation Principles This page was last updated on November 14, 2011IntroductionAbout the Theorist Myra Estrine Levine Born in Chicago Diploma in nursing:-Cook County SON, Chicago, 1944 BSN:-University of Chicago,1949 MSN:-Wayne State University, Detroit, 1962 Publication:- An Introduction to Clinical Nursing, 1969, 1973 & 1989 Received honorary doctorate from Loyola University in 1992 Clinical experience in OT technique and oncology nursing Civilian Nurse at the Gardiner General Hospital Director of Nursing at Drexel Home in Chicago Clinical Instructor at Bryan Memorial Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska Administrative supervisor at University of Chicago Chairperson of clinical nursing at Cook Country SON Visiting professor at Tel Aviv University in Israel Died in 1996Major Concepts of Conservational model Goal of the model is to promote adaptation and maintain wholeness using the principles of conservation Model guides the nurse to focus on the influences and responses at the organismic level Nurse accomplishes the goal of model through the conservation of energy, structure and personal and social integrityAdaptation Every individual has a unique range of adaptive responses The responses will vary by heredity, age, gender or challenges of illness experiences While the responses are same, the timing and manifestation of organismic responses will be unique for each individual pulse rate. An ongoing process of change in which patient maintains his integrity within the realities of environment Achieved through the "frugal, economic, contained and controlled use of environmental resources by individual in his or her best interest" 22
  23. 23. Wholeness Exist when the interaction or constant adaptations to the environment permits the assurance of integrity Promoted by use of conservation principleConservation The product of adaptation "Keeping together "of the life systems or the wholeness of the individual Achieving a balance of energy supply and demand that is with in the unique biological realities of the individualNursing’s paradigmPerson A holistic being who constantly strives to preserve wholeness and integrity A unique individual in unity and integrity, feeling, believing, thinking and whole system of systemEnvironment Competes the wholeness of person Internal o Homeostasis o Homeorrhesis External o Preconceptual o Operational o ConceptualInternal Environment Homeostasis o A state of energy sparing that also provide the necessary baselines for a multitude of synchronized physiological and psychological factors o A state of conservation Homeorrhesis o A stabilized flow rather than a static state o Emphasis the fluidity of change within a space-time continuum o Describe the pattern of adaptation, which permit the individual‟s body to sustain its well being with the vast changes which encroach upon it from the environmentExternal Environment Preconceptual o Aspect of the world that individual are able to intercept Operational o Elements that may physically affects individuals but not perceived by hem: radiation, micro-organism and pollution Conceptual o Part of persons environment including cultural patterns characterized 23
  24. 24. by spiritual existence, ideas, values, beliefs and traditionPerson and environment Adaptation Organismic response ConservationAdaptationCharacteristics Historicity: Adaptations are grounded in history and await the challenges to which they respond Specificity: Individual responses and their adaptive pattern varies on the base of specific genetic structure Redundancy: Safe and fail options available to the individual to ensure continued adaptationOrganismic response A change in behavior of an individual during an attempt to adapt to the environment Help individual to protect and maintain their integrity They co-existThey are four types: 1. Flight or fight: An instantaneous response to real or imagined threat, most primitive response 2. Inflammatory: response intended to provide for structural integrity and the promotion of healing 3. Stress: Response developed over time and influenced by each stressful experience encountered by person 4. Perceptual: Involves gathering information from the environment and converting it in to a meaning experienceNine models of guided assessment Vital‟s signs Body movement and positioning Ministration of personal hygiene needs Pressure gradient system in nursing interventions Nursing determination in provision of nutritional needs Pressure gradient system in nursing Local application of heat and cold Administration of medicine Establishing an aseptic environmentAssumption The nurse creates an environment in which healing could occur A human being is more than the sum of the part Human being respond in a predictable way 24
  25. 25. Human being are unique in their responses Human being know and appraise objects ,condition and situation Human being sense, reflects, reason and understand human being action are self determined even when emotional Human being are capable of prolonging reflection through such strategists raising questionsCharacteristics of theory The concept of illness adaptation, using interventions, and the evaluation of nursing interventions are interrelated. Concepts are sequential and logical and can be used to explain the consequences of nursing action. Levine‟s theory is easy to use and elements are easily comprehensible. Levine‟s idea can be tested and hypothesis can be derived from them. The principle of conservation are specific enough to be testable Levine‟s idea have not yet been widely researched. Levines theory has been applied in surgical settings. Levine‟s ideas are consistent with other theories, laws and principles particularly those from the humanities and sciencesConservational Principle Conservation of energy Conservation of structural integrity Conservation of personal integrity Conservation of social integrity1. Conservation of energy Refers to balancing energy input and output to avoid excessive fatigue includes adequate rest, nutrition and exerciseExample: Availability of adequate rest Maintenance of adequate nutrition2. Conservation of structural integrity Refers to maintaining or restoring the structure of body preventing physical breakdown And promoting healingExample: Assist patient in ROM exercise Maintenance of patient‟s personal hygiene3. Conservation of personal integrity Recognizes the individual as one who strives for recognition, respect, self awareness, selfhood and self determination 25

Nurse has the responsibility for determining the patient ability to participate in the care, and if the perception of nurse and patient about the patient ability to participate in care don‟t match, this mismatch will be an area of conflict. The major limitation is the focus on individual in an illness state and on the dependency of patient.Research Highlights A theory of health promotion for preterm infants based on conservational model of nursing.

  28. 28. INTRODUCTION The theory of health as expanding consciousness stems from Rogers theory of unitary human beings. The theory of health as expanding consciousness was stimulated by concern for those for whom health as the absence of disease or disability is not possible, (Newman, 2010). The theory has progressed to include the health of all persons regardless of the presence or absence of disease, (Newman, 2010). The theory asserts that every person in every situation, no matter how disordered and hopeless it may seem, is part of the universal process of expanding consciousness – a process of becoming more of oneself, of finding greater meaning in life, and of reaching new dimensions of connectedness with other people and the world, (Newman, 2010).BACHGROUND OF THE THEORIST Born on October 10, 1933.

Health encompasses conditions heretofore described as illness, or, in medical terms, pathology 2. These pathological conditions can be considered a manifestation of the total pattern of the individual 3. The pattern of the individual that eventually manifests itself as pathology is primary and exists prior to structural or functional changes 4. Removal of the pathology in itself will not change the pattern of the indivdual 5. If becoming ill is the only way an individuals pattern can manifest itself, then that is health for that person 6. Health is an expansion of consciousness.DESCRIPTION OF THE THEORY “The theory of health as expanding consciousness (HEC) was stimulated by concern for those for whom health as the absence of disease or disability is not possible. Nurses often relate to such people: people facing the uncertainty, debilitation, loss and eventual death associated with chronic illness. The theory has progressed to include the health of all persons regardless of the presence or absence of disease. The theory asserts that every person in every situation, no matter how disordered and hopeless it may seem, is part of the universal process of expanding consciousness – a process of becoming more of oneself, of finding greater meaning in life, and of reaching new dimensions of connectedness with other people and the world” (Newman, 2010). 28
  29. 29. Humans are open to the whole energy system of the universe and constantly interacting with the energy. With this process of interaction humans are evolving their individual pattern of whole. According to Newman understanding the pattern is essential. The expanding consciousness is the pattern recognition. The manifestation of disease depends on the pattern of individual so the pathology of the diseases exists before the symptoms appear so removal of disease symptoms does not change the individual structure. Newman also redefines nursing according to her nursing is the process of recognizing the individual in relation to environment and it is the process of understanding of consciousness. The nurse helps to understand people to use the power within to develop the higher level of consciousness. Thus it helps to realize the disease process, its recovery and prevention. Newman also explains the interrelatedness of time, space and movement. Time and space are the temporal pattern of the individual, both have complementary relationship. Humans are constantly changing through time and space and it shows unique pattern of reality.NURSING PARADIGMSHealth “Health and illness are synthesized as health - the fusion on one state of being (disease) with its opposite (non-disease) results in what can be regarded as health”.Nursing Nursing is “caring in the human health experience”. Nursing is seen as a partnership between the nurse and client, with both grow in the “sense of higher levels of consciousness”Human “The human is unitary, that is cannot be divided into parts, and is inseparable from the larger unitary field” “Persons as individuals, and human beings as a species are identified by their patterns of consciousness”… “The person does not possess consciousness-the person is consciousness”. Persons are “centers of consciousness” within an overall pattern of expanding consciousness”Environment Environment is described as a “universe of open systems”STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSESStrengths Can be applied in any setting “Generates caring interventions”W eaknesses Abstract Multi-dimensional Qualitative 29

Little discussion on environmentCRITIQUEClarity Semantic clarity is evident in the definitions, descriptions, and dimensions of the concepts of the theory.Simplicity The deeper meaning of the theory of health as expending consciousness is complex. The theory as a whole must be understood, nut just the isolated concepts.Generality The theory has been applied in several different cultures It is applicable across the spectrum of nursing care situations.Empirical Precision Quantitative methods are inadequate in capturing the dynamic, changing nature of this theory.Derivable Consequences Newmans theory provides an evolving guide for all health-related disciplines.CONCLUSIONNewmans theory can be conceptualized as A grand theory of nursing Humans can not be divided into parts Health is central to the theory and is seen “and is seen as a process of developing awareness of self and the environment” “Consciousness is a manifestation of an evolving pattern of person-environment interaction” 6. Health Belief Model (HBM)This page was last updated on May 2, 2011INTRODUCTION The Health Belief Model (HBM) is one of the first theories of health behavior. It was developed in the 1950s by a group of U.S. Public Health Service social psychologists who wanted to explain why so few people were participating in programs to prevent and detect disease. HBM is a good model for addressing problem behaviors that evoke health concerns (e.g., high-risk sexual behavior and the possibility of contracting HIV) (Croyle RT, 2005) The health belief model proposes that a persons health-related behavior depends on the persons perception of four critical areas: 1. the severity of a potential illness, 2. the persons susceptibility to that illness, 3. the benefits of taking a preventive action, and 4. the barriers to taking that action. HBM is a popular model applied in nursing, especially in issues focusing on patient 30
  31. 31. compliance and preventive health care practices. The model postulates that health-seeking behaviour is influenced by a person’s perception of a threat posed by a health problem and the value associated with actions aimed at reducing the threat. HBM addresses the relationship between a person’s beliefs and behaviors. It provides a way to understanding and predicting how clients will behave in relation to their health and how they will comply with health care therapies.THE MAJOR CONCEPTS AND DEFINITIONS OF THE HEALTH PROMOTION MODELThere are six major concepts in HBM:1. Perceived Susceptibility2. Perceived severity3. Perceived benefits4. Perceived costs5. Motivation6. Enabling or modifying factors 1. Perceived Susceptibility: refers to a person’s perception that a health problem is personally relevant or that a diagnosis of illness is accurate. 2. Perceived severity: even when one recognizes personal susceptibility, action will not occur unless the individual perceives the severity to be high enough to have serious organic or social complications. 3. Perceived benefits: refers to the patient’s belief that a given treatment will cure the illness or help to prevent it. 4. Perceived Costs: refers to the complexity, duration, and accessibility and accessibility of the treatment. 5. Motivation: includes the desire to comply with a treatment and the belief that people should do what. 6. Modifying factors: include personality variables, patient satisfaction, and socio- demographic factors. 31
  32. 32. Criticisms of HBM Is health behaviour that rational? Its emphasis on the individual (HBM ignores social and economic factors) ·The absence of a role for emotional factors such as fear and denial. Alternative factors may predict health behaviour, such as outcome expectancy (whether the person feels they will be healthier as a result of their behaviour) and self-efficacy (the person’s belief in their ability to carry out preventative behaviour) (Seydel et al. 1990; Schwarzer 1992. Application of Betty Neumans System Model This page was last updated on October 28, 2011INTRODUCTION The Neuman‟s system model has two major components:stress and reaction to stress. The client in the Neuman‟s system model is viewed as an open system in which repeated cycles of input, process, out put and feed back constitute a dynamic organizational pattern. The client may be an individual, a group, a family, a community or an aggregate. In the development towards growth and development open system continuously become more differentiated and elaborate or complex. As they become more complex, the internal conditions of regulation become more complex. Exchange with the environment are reciprocal, both the client and the environment may be affected either positively or negatively by the other. The system may adjust to the environment to itself. The ideal is to achieve optimal stability. As an open system the client, the client system has propensity to seek or maintain a balance among the various factors, both with in and out side the system, that seek to disrupt it. Neuman seeks these forces as stressors and views them as capable of having either positive or negative effects. Reaction to the stressors may be possible or actual with identifiable responses and symptom.NURSING PROCESS BASED ON SYSTEM MODEL Assessment: Neuman‟s first step of nursing process parallels the assessment and nursing diagnosis of the six phase nursing process. Using system model in the assessment phase of nursing process the nurse focuses on obtaining a comprehensive client data base to determine the existing state of wellness and actual or potential reaction to environmental stressors. Nursing diagnosis- the synthesis of data with theory also provides the basis for nursing diagnosis. The nursing diagnostic statement should reflect the entire client condition. Outcome identification and planning- it involves negotiation between the care giver and the client or recipient of care. The overall goal of the care giver is to guide the client to conserve energy and to use energy as a force to move beyond the present. Implementation – nursing action are based on the synthesis of a comprehensive data base about the client and the theory that are appropriate to the client‟s and caregiver‟s perception and possibilities for functional competence in the environment. According to this step the evaluation confirms that the anticipated or prescribed change has occurred. Immediate and long range goals are structured in relation to the short term goals. Evaluation – evaluation is the anticipated or prescribed change has occurred. If it is not met the goals are reformed.ASSESSMENTPATIENT PROFILE 1. Name- Mr. AM 2. Age- 66 years 32
  33. 33. 3. Sex-Male 4. Marital status-married 5. Referral source- Referred from ------- Medical College, -------STRESSORS AS PERCEIVED BY CLIENT (Information collected from the patient and his wife) Major stress area, or areas of health concern Patient was suffering from severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, yellowish discolorations of eye, palm, and urine, reduced appetite and gross weight loss(8kg with in 4 months) Patient is been diagnosed to have Periampullary carcinoma one week back. Patient underwent operative procedure i.e. WHIPPLE‟S PROCEDURE- Pancreato duodenectomy on 27/3/08. Psychologically disturbed about his disease condition- anticipating it as a life threatening condition. Patient is in depressive mood and does not interacting. Patient is disturbed by the thoughts that he became a burden to his children with so many serious illnesses which made them to stay with him at hospital. Patient has pitting type of edema over the ankle region, and it is more during the evening and will not be relieved by elevation of the affected extremities. He had developed BPH few months back (2008 January) and underwent surgery TURP on January 17. Still he has mild difficulty in initiating the stream of urine. Patient is a known case of Diabetes since last 28 years and for the last 4 years he is on Inj. H.Insulin (4U- 0-0).

The fatigue is similar to that of previous hospitalization (after the surgery of the BPH) Severity of pain was some what similar in the previous time of surgery i.e. TURP. Was psychologically disturbed during the previous surgery i.e. TURP. What helped then- family members psychological support helped him to over come the crisis situationAnticipation of the future Concerns about the healthy and speedy recovery. Anticipation of changes in the lifestyle and food habits Anticipating about the demands of modified life style Anticipating the needs of future follow upWhat doing to help himself? Talking to his friends and relatives Reading the religious materials i.e. reading the Bible Instillation of positive thoughts i.e. planning about the activities to be resume after discharge, spending time with grand children, going to the church, return back to the social interactions etc Avoiding the negative thoughts i.e. diverts the attentions from the pain or difficulties, try to eliminate the 33
  34. 34. disturbing thoughts about the disease and surgery etc Trying to accept the reality etc..What is expected of others? Family members visiting the patient and spending some time with him will help to a great extent to relieve his tension. Convey a warm and accepting behaviour towards him. Family members will help him to meet his own personal needs as much as possible. Involve the patient also in taking decisions about his own care, treatment, follow up etcSTRESSORS AS PERCEIVED BY THE CARE GIVER.Major stress areas Persistent fatigue Massive weight loss i.e.( 8 kg of body weight with in 4 months) History of BPH and its surgery Persistence of urinary symptoms (difficulty in initiating the stream of urine) and edema of the lower extremities Persistent disease- chronic hypertensive since last 28 years Depressive ideations and negative thoughts Present circumstances differing from the usual pattern of living Hospitalization acute pain ( before the surgery patient had pain because of the underlying pathology and after the surgery pain is present at the surgical site) nausea and vomiting which was present before the surgery and is still persisting after the surgery also anticipatory anxiety concerns the recovery and prognosis of the disease negative thoughts that he has become a burden to his children Anticipatory anxiety concerning the restrictions after the surgery and the life style modifications which are to be followed.Clients past experience with the similar situations Patient verbalized that the severity of pain, nausea, fatigue etc was similar to that of patient‟s previous surgery. Counter checked with the family members that what they observed. Psychologically disturbed previously also before the surgery. (collected from the patient and counter checked with the relatives) Client perceived that the present disease condition is much more severe than the previous condition. He thinks it is a serious form of cancer and the recovery is very poor. So patient is psychologically depressed.Future anticipations Client is capable of handling the situation- will need support and encouragement to do so. He has the plans to go back home and to resume the activities which he was doing prior to the hospitalization. He also planned in his mind about the future follow up ie continuation of chemotherapyWhat client can do to help himself? Patient is using his own coping strategies to adjust to the situations. He is spending time to read religious books and also spends time in talking with others He is trying to clarify his own doubts in an attempt to eliminate doubts and to instill hope. He sets his major goal i.e. a healthy and speedy recovery. Clients expectations of family, friends and caregivers he sees the health care providers as a source pf information.
