It is definitely one that is very important to the health of the patient. My focus in on hospitalization rates of heart failure patients and how to reduce therisk of readmission. When applying the lewin's theory of unfreeze, change and refreeze, I plan to unfreeze the area pt's bad habits and not understanding the disease, changing their knowledge base to manage their disease correctly out of the hospital and implementing it outside the hospital setting using the transitional care model. We do have to remember as nurses, that changeis hard for many people and by being patient, supportive and positive, the plan can be successful.Feb 07, 2018 01:02 PM 0 LikeSubstantive Post Michelle Johnson 4 posts Re:Re:Topic 4 DQ 2Hi Ansy,I agree with you that many of the change theories have a relative framework. Basically to identify, change and enforce or practice. These areas of change have to happen for the plan to be successful. It was interesting when I was going through seeral of the theories. They all complement each other and "add" to each others system. When talking to my mentor about what change theory, she stated that she uses many change theories and sometimes even combines them. It is based on the situation. She made a very valid point. That all nurses need to understandall the theories and be able to "customize" the change system to make it the most successful.

I work in substance abuse and this is a model that has been discussed before by counselors and case managers. The precontemplation and contemplation phases seem to be where most people get stuck, in substance use disorder (SUD).Action is coming in for treatment and of course the maintenance part is the roughest for people trying to maintain their sobriety. Interestingly, it is the most stubborn individuals who seem to dowell as they take on the maintenance part with such fervor that they refuse to fail. That and ongoing counseling help fortify the maintenance and decrease relapse. Great post and reminder of this great change theory, thanks.
