Defined human conditions and life experiences encountered by all men as sufferings, hope, pain and illness. Environment Nursing "an interpersonal process whereby the professional nurse practitioner assists an individual, family or community to prevent or cope with experience or illness and suffering, and if necessary to find meaning in these experiences.” -“The nurse is responsible for helping the patient avoid and alleviate the distress of unmet needs.” Ida Jean Orlando Catholic Charity Institutions Theoretical Sources Viktor Frankl
Theoretical Sources - proposed the theory of logotherapy -humanistic revolution Human to Human Relationship Model 1. Original Encounter
-First impression by the nurse of the sick person and vice-versa. - Stereotyped or traditional roles Interactional Phases of Human-to-Human Relationship Model: 2. Emerging Identities
- the time when relationship begins
-the nurse and patient perceives each others uniqueness Interactional Phases of Human-to-Human Relationship Model: 3. Empathy
- the ability to share in the person’s experience Interactional Phases of Human-to-Human Relationship Model: 4. Sympathy
- when the nurse wants to lessen the cause of patient’s suffering.
- goes beyond empathy.

Logical Form - An inductive theory that uses specific nursing situations to create general ideas. Interactional Phases of Human-to-Human Relationship Model Hospice:
-self-actualizing life experience.
-assumption of the sick role.
-meaning of life, sickness and death. Practice -teaches nurses to understand the meaning of illness and suffering. Education -applied in the theory of caring cancer patients. Research -not consistent in clarity and origin.
-used different terms for the same definition.
-focus more on adult individuals who are sick and the nurse’s role in helping them to find meaning in their sickness and suffering.
-dealt with families and their needs but not the community Clarity not evident
contains different variables. Simplicity -has wide scope of application but applicable only to those patients in distress and life changing events. Generality -low measures of empirical soundness.
-result of lack of simplicity.
-defines concepts theoretically but does not define them operationally.
-the model has not been tested. Empirical Precision -development of quality of caring.
-it is useful because of its ability to describe, explain, predict and control a phenomena.
-explains the variables that affect the establishment of a therapeutic relationship between nurses and patients.
-lack of empirical precision also creates lack of usefulness. Derivable Consequences 1. Octaviano, E.F. & Balita, C.E. (2008). Theoretical Foundations of Nursing: The Philippine Perspective. Philippines: Ultimate Learning Series, 93-98.
