Teaching Caring Within the Context of Health

Gramling, Lou PhD, RN; Nugent, Katherine PhD, RN


Changes in the delivery of healthcare have created an environment viewed as uncaring to both the patient and healthcare providers. Thus teaching concepts of health and caring becomes a priority for nurse educators. The authors discuss how caring can be taught in the context of health. Specifically, they describe a teaching method which was aimed at sensitizing students to Allen's model of health and Watson's carative factors.
