Nurses and Patients in the Holistic Theory of Unpleasant Symptoms (HTOUS)

Updated: Sep 12, 2018

The theory is concerned with manifestations of patterns associated with open energy fields called ‘nurse’, ‘patient’, and ‘environment’. Each human field has an associated environmental field. Human fields evolve continuously in the context of their environments. The nurse is part of the patient’s environmental field and the patient is part of the nurse’s environmental field. Each interacts with their corresponding environmental field. Pattern manifestation is the expression of the relationship between human and environment; it is mutual, creative, continuously innovative, unpredictable, and dynamic.

This is opposed to the idea that the nurse patient relationship has its own energy field

Nurse and patient have overlapping environmental fields. Phenomena in that overlap affect both nurse and patient. Nursing intervention is an attempt to affect the client by altering phenomena or their perception in the environmental field.

This is opposed to the idea that the nurse patient relationship has its own energy field. The nurse patient relationship occurs as a manifestation of their overlapping environmental fields. Phenomena in that overlap affect both nurse and patient. Nursing intervention is an attempt to affect the client by altering phenomena or their perception in the patient’s environmental field and thereby altering pattern manifestation in the patient's energy field. Interaction with the patient's field is associated with change in the nurse's field.
