Model is One Of The Assessment Tools

Model is one of the assessment tools the nurse can use in order to provide the most successful plan to assist the patient in making life long changes.  

The nurse can use this model by exploring the patient’s ideas about change and their current lifestyle. The nurse will look into all aspects of the how the patient feels about life to determine where in the patient’s own life paradigm their health beliefs reside. Further the nurse should assess how important health is to the patient.  The nurse will assess how the patient thinks their problem will affect them as well as what the problem currently or potentially impedes for the patient related to their goals and life plans. 

The nurse will determine if the patient has risk factors which contribute to their problem or provide roadblocks to successfully overcoming the problem. (Hardy, S. 2014).    I need you to comment from this post, no more than 150 words and a reference needed.
