❖ The theory was from her study, the Categorization of Nursing Activities as
Observed in Medical-Surgical Ward Units in selected Government and Private
Hospitals in Metro Manila, which was conducted from January to June year 1987
❖ In the recent study of Laurente she states that the other entry point of helping the
patient is through the family, when nurses can be of great assistance to prevent
at the very beginning serious complications. The nurse can help strengthen the
family’s term of knowledge, skills, and attitude through effective communication,
employed informative, psychotherapeutic, modeling, behavioral, cognitive-
behavioral, and/or hypnotic techniques are summarized and evaluated

Concepts of the Theory

INursing Caring Behavior that affect patient’s Anxiety:

❖ Presence

person for healing

Enhancing and Predisposing Factor

❖ What is a predisposing Factor?
➢ Predisposing factors are defined in these models as factors that exert their
effects prior to a behavior occurring, by increasing or decreasing a person
or population’s motivation to undertake that particular behaviour.

❖ Predisposing Factors
➢ Age
➢ Sex
➢ Civil Status
➢ Educational Status
➢ Length of Work
➢ Experience

❖ Enhancing Factors
➢ One’s caring experience, beliefs and attitude
➢ Feeling good about
➢ Learning at school
➢ What patients tell about the nurse coping mechanism to problems
➢ Communication

➢ Communication is key when getting nurses to engage patients and
families in their care.
➢ Research to develop the guide found that communication gaps between
patients and caregivers can occur when hospitals do not address the
issues that patients' thoughts are most important. Another factor is the
available tools are to give health providers insights into patients' needs
and concerns. As a result, efforts by patients, families and health
providers to communicate more effectively with each other can fall short of
their goal.
➢ Each strategy includes educational tools and resources for patients and
families, training materials for healthcare professionals and real-world
examples that show how strategies are being implemented in hospital
settings. The strategies describe how patients and families, working with
hospital staff, can: be advisors; promote better communication at the
bedside to improve quality; participate in bedside shift reports; and
prepare to leave the hospital.
