Models/Theories of Care

  1. Hello
    I am wondering what models or theories of care you use as the framework for patient care on your units? Primarily I am interested in a model that could be applied to a short stay, inpatient child & adolescent psych unit. The philosophy of the unit is strengths a model based on strengths would be great...any ideas?

    I use Orem. She says nurses should provide care patients can't provide for themselves and help them improve their self-care (among other things).
