It is critically important that nurses develop and test clinically relevant, patient-centered, theoretically guided interventions in order to advance knowledge in nursing. The purpose of this presentation is to describe a new and evolving theoretical perspective on patient education that supports the development of such interventions. This approach is called a Representational Approach to patient education. The primary theoretical basis for this approach is Leventhal's Common Sense Model (CSM). One of the basic tenets of the CSM is that individuals have common sense beliefs, or representations, that guide how they cope with health problems. This presentation will start with a review of the CSM, with a particular focus on describing the dimensions of representation. This review will then be followed by a description of the components of a representational approach to patient education, with examples of how these components can be operationalized. Included in this discussion will be a description of the rationale for asserting that the representational approach should be effective and widely applicable because it includes patients as active participants in all phases of the learning continuum, from information acquisition to behavior change. This presentation will set the stage for the remaining presentations in this symposium, each of which will describe the development or testing of a representational approach to patient education for persons with widely differing health problems.
