 About the Book 

The Burford Nursing Development Unit Holistic Model offers a conceptually radical alternative to traditional models, emphasizing the nurse-patient relationship, which is considered essential for therapeutic nursing. This has led to questions as to whether aspects of psychosocial care is adequately framed within the nursing process format or whether it can in fact be continued by other nurses. Part One of this book describes the original philosophy behind this innovative model and how it was adapted for use. Part Two outlines the practical use of the model in the form of case studies, using critical analysis to test its current validity. Its use is also compared against previous models.
