A Professional Model of Caring

Our nursing team was among the first departments at Lakeland Regional Health to adopt Dr. Joanne Duffy’s Quality-Caring Model© as our professional practice model. That model of care is now reflected in all our departments.

By following Dr. Duffy’s eight caring factors of mutual problem solving, healing environment, attentive reassurance, human respect, encouraging manner, appreciation of unique meaning, affiliation needs and basic human needs, our team is able to provide exceptional, individualized care to our patients, families and team members.
