Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Since the mid-1970s, when the Neuman Systems Model was first used for nursing education and practice, the model has both led and followed evolving health care trends. During the 1980s, the model gained worldwide popularity as a valid and appropriate structure for care across cultural and health care disciplinary boundaries. Throughout the 1990s, use of the model as a guide for clinical practice, research, education, and administration increased. We anticipate that use of the Neuman Systems Model will continue throughout the twenty-first century, given the increasing recognition of the need for a wholistic, systems approach to global health care concerns.

This fourth edition of The Neuman Systems Model continues the tradition established with the previous three editions by including contributions that clearly reflect the broad, cross-cultural applicability of the model. Part One of this edition presents a detailed description of the Neuman Systems Model. Chapter 1 represents a reorganization of earlier presentations of the Neuman Systems Model.
