The PIT provides exploratory rationale to the patient.

Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Description of Theories
Watson’s nursing theories express that the mind, body and spirit of the patient should be taken into consideration. I agree with Watsons that while providing care the nurse should consider care base on the patient as a whole and not just focus on the disorder.

Bedside shift reporting is used in many health care facilities to promote a beneficial handoff for both patients and nurses. This type of reporting is an important process in clinical nursing practice because it allows staff to exchange necessary patient information to guarantee continuity of care and patient safety. “Moving the change-of-shift handoff to the patient’s bedside allows the oncoming nurse to visualize the patient as well as ask questions of the previous nurse and the patient” (Maxon, Derby, Wrobleski, & Foss, 2012). The standardization of shift handovers was identified as one of the 2009 National Client Safety Goals from The Joint Commission (TJC).
His framework focuses on an individual’s ability to meet their basic needs, which allows them to function in their defined roles. The framework focuses on perception, self-growth and development, body image, time, personal space and learning. King (1981) stated, “Although personal systems and social systems influence quality of care, the major elements in a theory of goal attainment are discovered in the interpersonal systems in which two people who are usually strangers, come together in a health care organization to help.” (Zimmerman, 2007) King’s framework can be compared to the assessment part of the nursing care plan.
