Slide 1: Overview of Lydia E. Hall’s Three C’s Theory
- Lydia E. Hall developed the syringe in 1950s
- The importance of patient-centered healthcare
- Three circles are interlocked in the theory: core, cure, and care
- Core represents the patient and the patient’s values and needs
- Treatment is the result of medical or nursing intervention
- Care represents the environment and the nurse’s attitude towards the patient
The Model’s Effectiveness in Nursing Practice
- Hall’s theory emphasizes the importance of the patient’s role in the healthcare process, which has been found to improve patient outcomes (Fry, 2015)
- This theory can be applied to modern nursing practices, since it’s aligned with a patient-centered model (Fry 2015).
- The three C’s can be used to guide nursing practice in a wide range of settings and situations (Nursing Theory, n.d.)
Use of Theory to Improve Nursing Practice
- Core: Nurses should take time to understand the patient’s values, culture, and beliefs to provide patient-centered care
- Nurses must use evidence-based interventions when providing medical or nursing care.
- Nurses must provide the patient with a therapeutic, safe and supportive environment.
