Title:
This presentation discusses the process of care, a name given by the authors to the totality of interpersonal interactions that summarily represent what is commonly referred to as health care. The Process of Care Model provides a framework for identifying and measuring the specific actions that are distinctly nursing, allowing nurses to identify what they do best and where their care fits with other health professionals. Despite years of discussion, nursing still has difficulty articulating what nurses do and what is their distinctive contribution to the overall arena of health care. Because of difficulty in articulating what nurses do, our profession struggles with developing outcome measures of the quality of nursing care. As nurses expand their roles, especially advanced practice nurses, their functions increasingly merge with other health professionals. Medical diagnosing and medication prescribing are activities that overlap with other health professionals, yet nurses believe that they do these activities in a manner that is different from how other professionals implement the same activities. Until nursing actions can be separated from actions of other health professionals we will never be able to fully measure the distinct quality of nursing care and we will continue to struggle with finding our legitimate place within the broader context of health care. The proposed theoretical Process of Care Model is based on research findings of outcome evaluation in nursing is informed by the authors’ clinical practice. It forms the basis for defining the distinctness of nursing’s contribution to health care, explicating more completely the nature of the human interactive process occurring when a patient seeks health café. This model can guide nursing education, practice, and future outcome research.
