Erickson, Tomlin and Swain


Erickson, Tomlin and Swain. 

Modeling/Role-Modeling (MRM) is one of several advanced nursing theories for providing effective, practical patient care. Though its current practical focus is nursing, its principles apply to many areas of holistic health care. The MRM home page provides a central clearinghouse for MRM-related information, activities, and contacts as well as information on related nursing and holistic health care topics. Based on the work of Erickson, Tomlin & Swain this page provides an overview and glossary and hosts a mailing list and conferencing facility.

  • Modeling & Role-Modeling Theory (MRM) - Erickson, Tomlin and Swain.

  • Modeling & Role Modeling theory - The theory is based on adaptation and through a specific assessment of adaptive potential, the Adaptive Potential Assessment Model (APAM), the nurse is guided to assess the client’s strengths, areas of positive adaptation, and state of arousal (Erickson & Swain, 1982).
