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.

ANA Code of Ethics & Population Health Nursing The American Nurse Association Code of Ethics is a tool for professional nurses, to use as a guide, when serving the patients and the public.
