The Parent-Staff Interaction Model of Pediatric Care.
Journal - Journal of pediatric nursing (United States )
Nursing models have had a long and often troubled history of development. Many that have been developed are not applicable in the pediatric setting. Models of pediatric care, though in use in many developing countries, are often not applicable within the cultures of those countries. This article outlines the history of the development of nursing models, the debate that has accompanied their progress, and the way in which they have been applied. An argument about the influence of culture on the way children are cared for in hospitals is postulated, and explanations are given as to why current models are not appropriate for use in pediatrics. A new philosophical model for pediatric nursing, the Parent-Staff Interaction Model of Pediatric Care, is presented and analyzed using Jacqueline Fawcett's framework for evaluation of nursing models. Its applicability to and use in any culture is explained, and feedback for further development is requested.Copyright 2002, Elsevier Science (USA). All rights reserved.
