Presentation in Powerpoint: Theoretical framework for support
This theory, or model, can guide evidence-based practices by providing a framework to understand the situation. For example, if an organization wanted to address the issue of patient safety, they could utilize Neuman’s Systems Model as a starting point. It provides nurses with an organized structure that integrates social, biological, and psychological care. This system helps nurses identify potential risks that could lead to adverse events or medical errors. It also allows them to prioritize their interventions.
It also serves to gather data about the success of those efforts in order for patients and their overall outcome. These steps, along with the use of the theory/model to inform their decisions will help organizations make better informed decisions based on evidence and not just intuition.
