Changes occur by by the continuous repatterning of the human and environmental fields by resonance waves The fields are one and integrated but unique to each other Nursing Paradigms Unitary Human Being person A unitary human being is an "irreducible, indivisible, pan dimensional four-dimensional energy field identified by pattern and manifesting characteristics that are specific to the whole and which cannot be predicted from knowledge of the parts" and "a unified whole having its own distinctive characteristics which cannot be perceived by looking at, describing, or summarizing the parts" Environment The environment is an "irreducible, pan dimensional energy field identified by pattern and integral with the human field" The field coexist and are integral. Manifestation emerge from this field and are perceived.
It is a diverse model developed in the middle of the previous century, but which retains relevance to this day.
Every nurse, much like every doctor, must reconcile within themselves why they do their work and why it is important to continue. In this way, a nurse can find strong motivation to do this work to the best degree possible Alligood, Nurses inherently are involved with observations and interventions that affect the world around them.
Though each human is a complete individual unto themselves and is greater than the sum of their parts, these humans fit Martha rogers theory of nursing a larger network of people known as a social structure or simple society.
Therefore, nursing must be responsible for the effect it has on the world as a whole.
This is a common theme, explored by other nursing theorists as well. This allows nurses to assess patients based on their psychosocial functioning in the world Alligood, Many nurses, while supporting in safety culture, end up compromising it due to being overworked.
Some nurses, for example, work two full time jobs at separate facilities, which leads to exhaustion. The more stressed and tires a nurse becomes, the more likely mistakes are. Burnout is condition that occurs when stress becomes so bad that it creates a kind of malaise.
Though a nurse may know that focus is important for the job, one experiencing burnout simply cannot find the motivation to keep focus. Nurse burnout adds to anxiety and at risk behavior in workplace and poor patient nurse communication. Nursing burnout may lead to poor decision making, example cohorting delirious patient with frail elderly Dall'ora, C.
While many nurses have strong motivating factors when entering the field, seeing the results of what they do as being greater than the sum of their parts and having a rippling effect out in the environment can help them remained focused even during mental fatigue.
There is no wisdom in having an overworked staff. If the staff are not healthy, neither will the patients be Dall'ora, C. Furthermore, nurses who are burned out are more likely to create situations that are stressful for a patient. One model stands out from the other, however, for being useful as both a motivational tool and a practical method of approaching the workplace environment of nurses: But it is also a model that can be applied to nurses themselves and which dictates that nurses are inherently linked in health to those around them.
If the nurse is unhealthy, so too will be the patient. As Weaver et al. Rather than merely hoping everyone has the same goals in mind, there is an actual method to ensuring people are coordinating and communicating properly to create a safe environment in which healing can occur.
Simply put, it is more likely to help create an evidence based practice for creature a culture of safety. Conclusion The work of Martha Rogers has been an important contribution to the nursing community both for its reframing of the scope of the work being done and for its emphasis on scientific processes needed to address the problems facing nursing.
It emphasizes both the importance of the individual as well as the connections that individual has to the environment and society as a whole.
It presents human beings as being more than the sum of their whole. This creates a clear chain of action that must be accomplished to maintain a culture of safety that starts with identifying nurses as a part of the clinical environment and ends with reducing stressors to patients that would result from nursing burnout.

Scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings and there is no consensus on a definition.
Emotion is often intertwined with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation. In some theories, cognition is an important aspect of emotion.
