Read an Excerpt

Since the mid-1970s, when the Neuman Systems Model was first used for nursing education and practice, the model has both led and followed evolving health care trends. During the 1980s, the model gained worldwide popularity as a valid and appropriate structure for care across cultural and health care disciplinary boundaries. Throughout the 1990s, use of the model as a guide for clinical practice, research, education, and administration increased. We anticipate that use of the Neuman Systems Model will continue throughout the twenty-first century, given the increasing recognition of the need for a wholistic, systems approach to global health care concerns.

This fourth edition of The Neuman Systems Model continues the tradition established with the previous three editions by including contributions that clearly reflect the broad, cross-cultural applicability of the model. Part One of this edition presents a detailed description of the Neuman Systems Model. Chapter 1 represents a reorganization of earlier presentations of the Neuman Systems Model. No changes in the content of the model have been made for this edition of the book.

Part Two focuses on the Neuman Systems Model and Clinical Practice. Chapter 2 is a discussion of guidelines for Neuman Systems Model-based clinical practice. Chapter 3 is an integrative review of the Neuman Systems Model-based clinical practice literature. Chapter 4 is a presentation and discussion of clinical tools that have been derived from the Neuman Systems Model. Chapters 5 and 6 present specific applications of the Neuman Systems Model in nursing practice in the United States (Chapter 5) and Canada (Chapter 6).

Part Three focuses onthe Neuman Systems Model and Nursing Research. Chapter 7 presents guidelines for Neuman Systems Model-based nursing research. Chapter 8 is an integrative review of the Neuman Systems Model-based research literature. Chapter 9 is a presentation and discussion of research instruments that have been derived from or linked with the Neuman Systems Model. Chapters 10 and 11 present specific applications of the Neuman Systems Model in nursing research in the United States (Chapter 10) and Thailand (Chapter 11).

Part Four focuses on the Neuman Systems Model and Nursing Education. Chapter 12 presents guidelines for Neuman Systems Model-based nursing education. Chapter 13 is an integrative review of the literature about the use of the Neuman Systems Model as a guide for nursing education. Chapter 14 is a presentation and discussion of educational tools that have been derived from the Neuman Systems Model. Chapters 15 and 16 present specific applications of the Neuman Systems Model in nursing education in the United States (Chapter 15) and Holland (Chapter 16).

Part Five focuses on the Neuman Systems Model and Nursing Administration. Chapter 17 is a discussion of guidelines for Neuman Systems Model-based administration of nursing services. Chapter 18 is an integrative review of the Neuman Systems Model-based nursing administration literature. Chapters 19 and 20 present specific applications of the Neuman Systems Model as a guide for administration of nursing services in the United States (Chapter 19) and Holland (Chapter 20).

Part Six addresses the Neuman Systems Model and the Future. In Chapter 21, Betty Neuman presents ideas about the future of the Neuman Systems Model.

This edition also includes five appendices. Appendix A provides the definition of each Neuman Systems Model concept. Appendix B presents Betty Neuman's autobiography and a chronology of the development and utilization of the Neuman Systems Model. Appendix C includes the Neuman Systems Model Nursing Process Format and the Neuman Systems Model Assessment and Intervention Tool, as well as a family case study that illustrates the wellness-focused, comprehensive, and flexible features of the Neuman Systems Model. Appendix D is a description of the Neuman Systems Model Trustees Group and a list of current Trustees. Appendix E presents a comprehensive bibliography of Neuman Systems Model literature, including primary sources, commentaries, and applications in clinical practice, research, education, and administration.

This fourth edition is suitable as a text for all levels of nursing education in all clinical specialties, as well as for continuing education programs. This edition also is a useful text for students, educators, clinicians, researchers, and administrators in all health care disciplines.

We acknowledge the enthusiasm of users and would-be users of the Neuman Systems Model worldwide. Their interest in and questions about practical uses of the model provided the motivation for this edition.

We offer our gratitude to all contributing authors for their willingness to share their most creative work with us and with the readers of this edition. We are grateful also for the continuing support of the Neuman Systems Model Trustees. Their commitment to the Neuman Systems Model certainly will assure its continuing contributions to the advancement of health care knowledge in general and nursing knowledge in particular.

We extend our appreciation to Maura Connor, Executive Editor, Nursing, and Beth Ann Romph, Editorial Assistant, Nursing, of Prentice Hall Health, for their support, encouragement, and assistance throughout the preparation of this edition. We also acknowledge the essential contributions of all the people who facilitated the production of this edition, with special appreciation to Linda Begley.
