As a follow-up to the author’s recent thoughts on ‘understanding the nursing process’ (Stonehouse, 2017), this article examines the two complementary models of Roper, Logan and Tierney (1980): their model of living and model of nursing. The different components which make up the two models will be explored and related to clinical practice.

It is important for support workers to understand both models and how they are being used within their clinical environment. Through support workers examining different models will assist in achieving section 6 of The Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England (Skills for Care and Skills for Health, 2013), which urges employees to ‘strive to improve the quality of healthcare, care and support through continuing professional development’.
