Bedlam exhibition and Nijinsky's Mask, 1919

humanistic -------------------------------------------  mechanistic

It is still surprising how often you are led to wonder: 'Will the real Mr - Ms X, Y please stand up?' So many people are still reliant, dependent upon psychotropic medication to the extent that they too acknowledge that to a lesser or greater degree they do not know themselves. Ordinarily, we take for granted the various roles and personas, yes: the masks that we adopt unconsciously in the course of the day. Reducing this medication, assisting in the removal of the mask can be a great challenge especially in a community setting. When the combined services of primary care, community mental health team work with patients and carers this brings its own rewards. From behind the mask a new voice emerges: independence, understanding, motivation, spontaneity, tangible happiness - contentedness. ... Before that though we still need to maintain and teach the skills to really attend and listen, to see the person behind the mask...

Grid Design: The architecture of care? c/o Brinson (2007)

The context of Brinson's (2007) thesis is graphic design, but there are many insights, overlaps and references in a study that ...

"explores the logical integration of conceptual meaning into the grid structure" (p.61). 
 “All innovation and most design is the result of connections—the link between experience and action, between deductive logic and inductive insight, between the analysis of a problem and the verification of its solution”1 (p.2) 
“The important thing to remember is that while a grid can help to generate a sense of unity and continuity in a design, it is within itself creative. In the hands of unskilled designers, grids can become straightjackets that inhibit creative concepts.”4 (p.5)

 “Ostensibly, the best grids are based on a general evaluation of content and reflect the particular character and presentational requirements of that content.”78 (p.105)
humanistic -------------------------------------------  mechanistic

While analysis is to the fore in the thesis there is less emphasis on synthesis amid talk of deconstruction. Hodges' model can (I believe) be used for conceptual analysis and synthesis. A tool to deconstruct, to identify the parts and integrate the whole. As a representational frame Hodges' model could also represent change through time.

Editorial: Assuring the Capture of Standardized Nursing Data... Ponte, Somerville & Adams (2016)

In their editorial Ponte, Somerville and Adams (2016) focus on the US nursing care situation and contrast with the UK experience from the outset:

As the U.S. health system moves toward value-based care, chief nursing officers (CNOs) are pressured as never before to demonstrate nursing’s contributions to improving the cost, quality, and efficiency of care, key elements of the value equation. The shift from fee-for-service to value-based care and reimbursement has been made possible through the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs), and the emergence of Big Data analytics, in which payers and healthcare organizations mine the streams of data produced by clinical and administrative systems to understand and evaluate care inputs, processes, and outcomes (Westra, Clancy, et al., 2015).
The contrast is implicit and is not the purpose of the editorial: Assuring the Capture of Standardized Nursing Data: A Call to Action for Chief Nursing Officers. From a still summery Lancashire the above really does seem a continent away, if not a world. It should not be this way. Questions of value for money, the quality of nursing care and outcomes are also central here and digital aspirations are ongoing: NHS Digital.

Perhaps Hodges' model lacks appeal not just because of its historical (mid-1980s) qualities, but a 4x4 checkbox appearance that seeks to standardize care concepts and the nurse's approach? Not only that but maybe the model dictates where they should be placed? The push for data to 'let the light in' and make nursing visible, can also seem a major, externally driven and intrusive distraction from nursing care. That is, doing the job, being a nurse, nursing delivery, caring ...

That Assuring in the title is important. It is the kernel of recursion, the crucial check that is governance and engaged management. Not remote via a screen - dashboard, but in-process - in-situ assuring that the nursing role can and is delivering. In the dash to data vision can become blurred. Socio-technical perspectives are skewed, what might be termed holistic bandwidth is constrained as per the system.
Ensuring that standardized, encoded nursing data are captured in EHRs is critical if nursing is to realize the potential of big data analytics. Having nursing data available for analysis will allow us to gain a better understanding of nursing practice, demonstrate nursing’s contributions to patient care and outcomes, and facilitate evidence-based practice and nursing research. Indeed, we will no longer be driving blind. Rather, we will be driving smart.
Somewhere in this big data lies person centered, holistic and integrated care. This needs to be transformed to self-care. Can these incremental positive changes be captured (once debated and defined)? Will nurses be empowered with access to this data: the big, little and what lies between? Where are the analysts? Who makes the decisions based on this data? Is transparency assured?

As technology advances we have much to do in the UK, lest we nurses find ourselves sat in what has suddenly become a self-driving vehicle that is bound who knows where....
