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).
In the following paragraphs, the grand theory of Jean Watson will be explored for its usefulness in practice. We will explore how the theory is congruent with current nursing standards and nursing interventions. Next, we will study if her theory has been tested empirically, if it is supported by research and if it is accurate. We will explore if there is evidence that her theory has been used by nursing educators, researchers, and nursing administrators. Then we will study how her theory is relevant socially and cross-culturally.
The concept of caring depicts the attitude of the nurse and the inclination given to meet the needs of the patient from emotional or physical standpoints (Emerson, 2017). Through concept application, caring concepts are able to enhance Human Caring theory and transform the patient’s quality of

This is why empowerment in health promotion is key to individuals with mental health problems (Morrissey et al, 2008). In order to empower service users, nurses should apply health promotion theories to their approach to care (Mutsatsa, 2015). Theories include the Health Belief Model (Becker et al, 1974) and the Self-Efficacy Theory (Bandura, 1977b). All these theories are based on actions by the nurse provide the service user with sufficient information that allows them to understand their health, triggers, their ability to improve and how they go about doing so. Nurses should also provide cognitive behavioural therapy in their approach to person-centred care when dealing with service users as it can have a positive impact on the way
However, despite the many difficulties, nurse leaders need to promote a working environment that is open to embracing change that is backed by evidence-based practices. With the correct balanced of quality patient centered care, financial accountability, and the innovation of evidence-based researched care, nurse leaders can lead other nurses to uphold these ambitious standards. Furthermore, by questioning outdated processes, conducting nursing research, and showing enthusiasm for evidence-based practices, the healthcare industry can be strengthened one nurse at a
Nursing Delegation for the RN Delegation is considered to be among the most involved nursing skills which require a nurse to apply knowledgeable clinical judgment and accountability during patient care. RNs have an obligation to finding what is needed for patients and families and then using the appropriate delegation to staff to help carry out the plan. This helps maximize on achieving the most desired outcomes and also maximize the use of available resources. The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.
These principles act as a set of rules and skills that assist in utilising therapeutic communication to ultimately promote behaviour change (Dart, 2011). MI focuses on building rapport in the initial stages of the nurse-patient relationship in order to provoke change (Rollnick et al., 2008). As a result, MI has the potential to significantly improve and achieve patient goals and objectives by identifying, analysing and resolving patient ambivalence in order to promote behavioural and lifestyle changes (Miller and Rollnick, 2013). This strategy seeks to assist patients in thinking differently about what might be achieved through change. MI also has the potential to act as a clinical tool in advising, educating and guiding patients in their quest for change (Rosengren,
