Slide 1: Overview of Lydia E. Hall’s Three C’s Theory
- In the 1950s, Lydia E. Hall developed this method.
- It focuses on patient-centered care
- It consists of three circles interconnected: Core, Cure, Care.
- Core represents the patient and the patient’s values and needs
- A medical or nursing intervention that is called “cure”
- Care represents the environment and the nurse’s attitude towards the patient
Slide 2: Evidence that the Model is Effective in Nursing Practice
- Hall’s theory emphasizes the importance of the patient’s role in the healthcare process, which has been found to improve patient outcomes (Fry, 2015)
- This theory can be applied to modern nursing practice because it is compatible with the patient-centered model of care (Fry 2015).
- The three C’s can be used to guide nursing practice in a wide range of settings and situations (Nursing Theory, n.d.)
Slide 3: The Theory and Practice of Nursing
- Core: Nurses should take time to understand the patient’s values, culture, and beliefs to provide patient-centered care
- Effective nursing or medical care: Nurses need to use evidence-based treatments for cure
- Patient Care: Nursing should offer safe and supportive care.
