  • Health =State of optimal functioning or well-being

  • Wellness= an active process in which individuals are aware of choices they make to lead a better life

  • Illness = state in which function is impaired compared with previous function.

  • Health has many definitions:


  • Traditionally health and illness were viewed as two separate entities

  • 1946 W.H.O. (World Health Organization) “the state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”

  • Several models of health and illness

Health - Illness Continuum

  • Measures a person’s perceivedlevel of health

  • Constantly changing state

  • Perception of HEALTH is influenced by individual’s self-concept, culture, environment, and many other internal & external variables

  • High level wellness at one end, normal health in the center and illness-death at the opposite end

Holistic Health Model

  • System that considers all components of health: promotion, maintenance, education, illness prevention,and restorative care

  • Holistic theory requires forces of nature be kept in balance therefore holistic health involves the total person

  • Clients assuming responsibility for health maintenance and Nurses working to promote optimal conditions to promote health.

Basic Human Needs Model

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

  • all people share basic human needs

  • each person has unique needs

  • priority is usually given to physiological needs, but may fluctuate d/t individual perceptions

Health Promotion Model (HPM)

  • HPM- depicts the multidimensional nature of people interacting with their interpersonal and physical environments when they pursue health

  • This model stresses the importance of an individuals uniqueness, behavior -specific cognitions and affect, and behavioral outcomes

Homeostasis& Adaptation

  • Homeostasis-physiological and psychological mechanisms respond to changes in the internal and external environment to maintain a balanced state. To maintain health the body’s internal environment needs a balanced state

  • Adaptation- change that occurs due to a response from stressor. Adaptation occurs to maintain homeostasis
