CONCEPT OF THIS THEORY:-
There are 4 aspectsof Neuman‘s theory.
Client/ person aspect
CLIENT/PERSON ASPECT OF THEORY:-

CHARCTERISTICS OF NEUMANS THEORY:-
1. Theories can inter relate concepts in such a way as to create a different way of
looking at a particular phenomenon.
Thisfocuson nursinginterest inthe total personapproachto the interactionof environmentand
health.The emphasisonwellnessandprimarypreventionisunique tothisframework.
2. Theories must be logical in nature.
In the logical translation of the neuman model, there appear to be incompatible
elements since the model reflects both mechanistic and organismic views of the
relationship of person to environment.
3. Theories should be relatively simple yet generalized
It issimple andstraightforwardinapproach.The termsusedare easilyidentifiableandfor
the most part have definitionsthatare broadlyaccepted.
4. Theories can be the bases for hypothesis that can be test
one area for future considering as a beginning testable theory might be the
concept of prevention as intervention.
SIGNIFICANCE OF NEUMANS MODEL
Nurses provide this care through their assessment, diagnosis, treatment and
education, and evaluation.
It is used at all levels of nursing education from diploma through doctorate.
It is used in many clinical areas in institutional and community nursing practice at
national and international sites.
