As we progress into the second decade of the 21st century, the healthcare needs of an increasingly diverse population are changing. Children's nurses must respond to these challenges by creating clear and effective plans of care in collaboration with children and their families. Legally and professionally, children's nurses are required to accurately record plans of care given to individual patients to provide a legal document demonstrating that care has been delivered (Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), 2008)...

This article reviews the health condition of a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It discusses the use of the Roper-Logan-Tierney activities of daily living framework model, in conjunction with the nursing process to identify the patient's main priorities for nursing care. COPD is the fifth most common cause of morbidity and mortality in the UK. It is a chronic illness often caused by smoking. The disease is a life-long illness and can affect all aspects of the person's life. Furthermore, exacerbations are often poorly controlled resulting in more frequent admissions to hospital, placing more pressure on patients, nurses and healthcare services...

This paper is to demonstrate the use of the Roper-Logan-Tierney model [The Elements of Nursing: A Model for Nursing Based on a Model for Living, fourth ed. Churchill Livingstone, London 1996] (RLT) in assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating the care of an infant in a neonatal intensive care setting. The paper also provides an insight into student's reflection upon learning during the programme and preparation of a care study. The RLT model provided a clear framework to guide the nursing care of Neonate...

BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a leading chronic health problem throughout the world.

Delirium is a common and under-reported problem in older adults. It can have a negative effect on patient outcomes and nurses often fail to identify it. This is the second part of an article that outlines nursing interventions based on the Roper, Logan and Tierney model of the activities of living. The first part of this article, which examined the clinical features, risk factors and assessment of delirium, was published in last week's Nursing Standard.

This care study, using the Roper, Logan and Tierney Model of Nursing, examines the presentation of a patient with a history of drug misuse and a current diagnosis of infective endocarditis and hepatitis C. While this particular model of nursing incorporates 12 activities of daily living, this care study will deal with three specific activities: maintaining a safe environment, communication and breathing. One of the main concerns arising from this care study was the inadequate management of pain for the patient...

In Alligood MR, Marriner-Tomey A, editors. Nursing theory utilisation and application. London: Mosby, 2002, Tierney AJ. Nursing models extant or extinct? J Adv Nurs 1998;8(1):77-85] and commonly used in practice. However, UK nurses in practice continue to be dissatisfied with conceptual model use [Griffiths P.

The purpose of this study is to investigate rehabilitation nurses' care for patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). It also examines how rehabilitation nurses perceive their role in assessing the alteration of self-concept and the interventions they use in helping patients to develop a more positive perception of themselves. A critical review of common models in use was undertaken including Roper, Logan and Tierney's Activities of Living Model, Roy's Adaptation Model and Orem's Self-care Deficit Nursing Theory...

In recent years approaches to nursing practice have changed. Nursing theorists have advocated the need for nursing practice to be carried out using a systematic rather than an intuitive approach. A process of nursing has been developed as a method of organizing and delivering nursing care. This change in nursing practice has resulted in the need to establish a knowledge base that relates specifically to nursing. Conceptual models of nursing, advocated by nursing theorists, have come into use in Ireland, the UK and the USA...

The Roper, Logan and Tierney nursing model is one of the most well-known in the UK and Ireland and is used in many other countries. This paper examines nurses' views on the model as described in the literature. It examines the model's usefulness in a neonatal care unit and focuses on the care of a premature baby, using the model as a basis for assessment and care.

AIMS: Activity of living based nurse models such as that proposed by Roper, Logan and Tierney are utilized commonly to rationalize, structure and guide practice. This paper proposes that their use, in the context of chronic pain, should be extended to incorporate the assessment of coping and its effect on disability. BACKGROUND: As coping has been found to account for some of the variance in adaptation to chronic pain, generic models of coping and their utility in this context are considered...

Although nursing models have always had their sceptics, they are now being subjected to more sustained criticism. Critiques have tended to focus mostly on the value of models for nursing practice but, increasingly, their place in nursing science is also being questioned. Reed believes that the growing disparagement of nursing models is symptomatic of the tensions between modernist and postmodernist perspectives on nursing. Drawing its title from Reed's discussion, this paper--from the opposite side of the Atlantic--reflects on the original purpose of nursing models and critically examines their relevance now, using the first and best-known British nursing model (the Roper-Logan-Tierney model for nursing) as the particular example for scrutiny...
