Responding to Betsy

Hello Betsy,

Great work with your post! I have always associated Kurt Lewin with the change theory. It is satisfying to see another one of his theories being applicable in a nursing setting. I agree that his heuristic formula that attempts to explain what determines behavior can be effective in helping improve health promotion. Patients’ behaviors are one of the factors that greatly affect their health. For instance, low physical activity and poor dieting behaviors increase the risk of obesity (Fruh, 2017). Similarly, eating foods that have too much cholesterol can increase the risk of heart disease (Harshfield et al., 2019). During health promotion, one of the goals of a nurse is to help change the behaviors that increase the risks of the health issues being tackled (Edelman, Mandle, & Kudzma, 2017). Therefore, it is amazing that you have identified a model that can help inform the nurse about the factors that influence the patient’s behaviors. Understanding behavior as a function of the person and their environment helps the nurse identify health promotion activities that target the improvement of the person’s decisions and changing their environment to enhance their positive health behaviors. I will also borrow from Lewin’s theory to improve the quality of health promotion activities in my practice.
