The first was that of acting on behalf of the patient which implies the nurse represent patients who are unable to or those that feel they are unable to represent themselves. The second attribute is protecting patients which entails actions that promote the respect of the patients. Lastly, intervene in the provision of healthcare.

They should respect the client despite their mental health backgrounds.
It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
Communication is an important aspect of nursing care. Communication varies depending on the context and situation it is used. With communication relationships are formed and survival needs are met. As student nurse, we use communication to collect vital data needed in order to assess, plan, implement and evaluate care for the client. The word communication has different meanings ‘to some communication is the interchange of information between two or more people to others still communication is simply getting the message across.
Nursing interventions and rationales include: assess influence of cultural beliefs, norms, values and client’s ability to modify behavior; assess the effect of fatalism on a client’s ability to modify behavior; clarity culturally related health beliefs and practices; provide culturally targeted education and health care services (Ackley & Ladwig, 2014, pp. 413–414). Ideally nurse would possess certain level of knowledge about the patient culture or asked the coworkers to assist. On the other hand it would be impossible to posses knowledge about every culture and its customs. Nurse should explain details of procedures or necessary changes that would bring positive healthy results, withhold the judgement and attempt to understand the patient
The theorist Betty Neuman explains how the whole system affects the patient’s health and shows how the nurses are responsible for the social, mental, spiritual, physical and emotional state of the patient and not only the physical aspect. With the theory, nurses and other professionals are able to provide effective systematic nursing care to their patient using the System Model. Furthermore, her ideas give the importance on how to give the right care through stressful situations and give knowledge and development to the science of nursing.

Perhaps if stage two was broken up and divided up between stage one and stage three. For example, Egan & Schroeder (2009) stage two of the helping model describes steps for the client to imagine possibilities for a better tomorrow. In addition, being able to choose realistic and achievable goals to be able to commit their selves to be able to achieve their goals for improvement could potentially be added tasks to stage one. If stage two was to broken up, it could potentially simplify the model, and make it easier to follow and apply within a client patient
Watson believes that the nurse’s assistance with patient’s basic needs potentiate alignment of the mind-body-spirit. Lastly, she advocates to the opening and attending to spiritual, mysterious, and unknown existential dimensions of life, death, and
