Holistic nursing. An approach to patient and self-care
Journal/Book: Aorn J. 1987; 46: 499-506.
Abstract: The re-emergence of the holistic health care paradigm has begun to revolutionize the health care system. New modes of nursing intervention, including therapeutic massage, therapeutic touch, imagery, and music can now be implemented by the perioperative nurse. All nurses must recognize the need for self-care and healthful behavior patterns in their own lives. When nurses achieve wellness, not only will they feel and function better, but they will be able to deliver high-quality care.
