Week 5 The theory that resonates most with me in my practice as an NP is Joanne Duffy’s Quality-Care Model, QCM (2003). The QCM is a theoretical framework that supports the connection between nurse caring and quality health outcomes, “exposing the hidden value of nursing,” ( Duffy, 2018). The QCM is a relationship-centered framework that influences positive outcomes for patients, families, healthcare providers and systems (Heindel, 2015). The QCM theory integrates the nursing paradigm through four complex relationships including relationships with self, community, patients and families and other healthcare professionals ( Duffy, 2018). Emerging evidence shows that adoption of the QCM as the foundation of nursing practice utilizing caring relationships in patient care will optimize patient, nurse, and system outcomes ( Duffy, 2018). Furthermore, Duffy’s research showed that nurse caring was strongly associated with patient satisfaction, which resulted in decreased adverse outcomes and improve nurse satisfaction and retention ( Duffy, 2018). Parts of the QCM theory that I identify with are reprioritization of nursing actions with increased emphasis on human relations and less focus on routine tasks, latest technology or equipment and the facilitation of health through relationships and nurse caring.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
