Betty Neuman - Systems Model


Betty Neuman 1924-

Systems Model

"Neuman's model focuses on the person as a complete system, the subparts of which are interrelated physiological, psychological, sociocultural, spiritual, and developmental factors."   Polit & Henderson p. 103

The Neuman Systems Model is a unique, systems-based perspective that provides a unifying focus for approaching a wide range of nursing concerns. The Neuman Systems Model is a comprehensive guide for nursing practice, research, education, and administration that is open to creative implementation.(and) has the potential for unifying various health-related theories, clarifying the relationships of variables in nursing care and role definitions at various levels of nursing practice. The multidimensionality and wholistic systemic perspective of the Neuman Systems Model is increasingly demonstrating its relevance and reliability in a wide variety of clinical and educational settings throughout the world.
