Joyce Travelbee

1926 - 1973

FAR ahead of her time with her call (in 1949!) for natural childbirth, prenatal instruction, father participation in birth process, and rooming-in! Joyce Travelbee 1966 "Human to Human Relationship Model" Art and Science of Humanistic Nursing A theory A unique, irreplaceable individual (Extract from http://www.unf.edu/~wahrens/theor.htm)


"Human to Human Relationship Model"

Travelbee's experience in initial psych nursing practice at a Catholic charity hospital led her to believe that the care given in these type of institutions lacked compassion. She felt nursing needed a "humanistic revolution" and a renewed focus on caring as central to nursing--she warned that if this didn't happen, consumers might seek a "new and different kind of health care worker." Travelbee's ideas have greatly influenced the hospice movement. Travelbee died tragically young at age 47 while beginning doctoral study.
