Case Study Pamela Reed Reed is currently a professor at the University of Arizona College of Nursing in Tuscon
Reed was strongly influenced by Martha Rogers' perspective of nursing and by lifespan development theories
She developed her nursing theory of Self-Transcendence based on her research and her developmental perspective of well-being Case Study While working on a surgical floor, a student nurse was working with a 65-year-old male who was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. Given the extent of his cancer he had a tracheotomy implanted, which meant he would never be able to sing again. This was a major life change for Mr. X, particularly because he not only loved to sing, but it was only source of income. He was performing in pubs downtown Victoria. Subsequently, he became depressed and was finding it difficult to cope with his new life. Nurse's Role 1. Providing critical information

2. Guiding them in ways to integrate the needed changes into their lives

3. Supporting their efforts to find meaning in the situation by being a good listener, validating their feelings, and guiding them in identifying their strengths as well as areas where professional help may be needed Nursing Processes Intrapersonal Interpersonal Transpersonal Temporal Middle-Range Theory of Self-Transcendence
