'situated' in Hodges' model #2

So, Hodges' model is person-centred and situated
- a conceptual springboard for all.

In the 1970-80s the nursing process challenged task-based care.

Ever since we have stressed individualised, personalised care and now today self-care.

Interpersonal and communication skills are central to nursing theory,
practice, management and informatics.

In Hodges' model the individual is the primary focus*.

The science and art of nursing
is predicated upon the
nurse - patient

Situated = 'Its a duet' (anagram)

*Inclusion of the 'group' in the model also facilitates
consideration of relatives, parent-child, family, community and populations.
