Circle of Caring

Holistic nursing involves looking at the patient as a whole involving their mind, body, spirit, social/cultural, emotions, relationships and environment combined to overall diagnose and treat a patient. The diagnosis involves each part of these elements as well as the healing culture of holistic nursing involves healing each part of these elements by different techniques. Biomedical nursing is the biomedical approaches used to care and influence nurses while providing care and these include pathology, physiology, biology, and biochemistry. I believe biomedical also refers to the devices and technology used from the health care team to diagnose and cure the diseases on hand. Mazzotta (2016) discusses how biomedical nursing is predominant in the 21st century and aides in nurses and providers care for patients. As healthcare advances so does the biomedical and technological devices utilized to provide patient care.

Where biomedical refers to more physical aspects and holistic refers to maybe more spiritual the circle of caring model actually builds on these two in addition by obtaining the subjective data, objective data, diagnosis, outcome, plan, and evaluation but adds additional unique qualities (Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas, 2015). The National Alliance of Caregiving (2018) describes the circle of caring model as not only looking at the patient but in the plan of care should include families, communities, thoughts, and feelings of the patient. The additional unique qualities of the circle of caring model also includes obtaining in depth understanding of a patients situation, life, strengths, weaknesses, and social determinants of health (Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas, 2015). Another unique aspect is that of actually giving labels to patients concerns and responses to illnesses in the daily life of a patient (Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas, 2015). Circle of caring aslso discusses not only a holistic approach, but a creative approach to a therapeutic plan and lastly, it involves not only the patient but the family, social groups, and the community perceptions of how the patient has improved (Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas, 2015). Overall, it is a broadened approach to patient care that includes the nursing model, holistic nursing, and biomedical nursing.
