The holistic approach provides for a therapeutic relationship, continuity, and efficient nursing care. This question is vague, but the holistic approach is probably the best answer. It’s true that holistic nursing provides both efficiency, continuity, and a more satisfying relationship for both nurses and patients. This is important because continuity and shared responsibility for care give both patient and nurse a sense of stake in the treatment program.

And long-term associations between nurses and their patients make the nurse better able to make decisions on behalf of the patient, and make patients better able to trust that their nurses have their personal wellbeing at heart. That’s why the holistic approach has proven to be particularly effective for both sides of the caregiving relationship.

The holistic approach provides for a therapeutic relationship, continuity, and efficient nursing care.

Studies have shown that patients and nurses both respond well to primary nursing care units. Patients feel less anxious and isolated and more secure because they are allowed to participate in planning their own care. Nurses feel personal satisfaction, much of it related to positive feedback from the patients. They also seem to gain a greater sense of achievement and esprit de corps.
