The Neuman Systems Model [5th ed. At the core of the diagram, energy resources are noted.
A constant energy exchange occurs between the client system and environment. The client maintains and augments system stability by using energy, regarded as a positive force available to the system.

As such, stability is not static but adaptive and developmental in nature because the client system is considered an open system in a state of constant change.
A series of protective Neumans system model encircle the center structure and protect the system from environmental stressors. Each system component is intersected by five variables physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual. These five variables interact synergistically and wholistically within all parts of the client system Neuman, Accordingly, the substance of each of the five variables depends on which client system is being considered.
Therefore, circulation could be considered a physiological variable for anindividual. Objective data that reflect the physiological variable of circulation would include vital signs, peripheral pulses, and heart sounds.
However, for a community system, the physiological variable could include vital statistics, morbidity, mortality, and general environmental health Hassell,Jajic, et al. For example, self-esteem and its effect on relationships for the individual and communication patterns for a family could be considered components of the psychological variable.
The combination of social and cultural functions or influences defines the sociocultural variable. Both ethnic cultural practices and health belief practices are examples and important components of this variable regardless of how the client system is defined. Client belief influence is exhibited in the spiritual variable.
Neuman proposes each of these five variables as system subparts that are open, with energy exchange existing within and between the client system and the environment Neuman, As noted in Figurethese five variables are considered simultaneous influences on the system.
Within the basic core, the five interacting variables physiological, psychological, developmental, sociocultural, and spiritual contain commonly known norms Neuman, For example, the individual as client possesses common resources such as organ structure and function, mental status, and coping mechanisms that are integral to core system stability.
Alternatively, the client as family has a basic structure that includes specific roles, attitudes, and cultural beliefs that provide energy resources and stability.
These are defenses activated by the client when internal or external environmental factors stress the client system. Broken lines that circle the basic structure diagrammatically represent these lines of resistance.For the past 40 years, Dr.
Betty Neuman has worked extensively advancing the Neuman systems model through her work as an educator, author, health consultant, presenter, and through writing and consultations with nursing educators, practitioners, administrators, and researchers at local, national, and international forums.
Application of the Betty Neuman systems model in the nursing care of patients/clients with multiple sclerosis The Neuman systems model is based on a general system theory and reflects the nature of living organisms as open systems in interaction with each other and with the environment.
Neuman’s process contains three basic parts. Neuman’s model was influenced by: The philosophy writers deChardin and Cornu (on wholeness in system). Von Bertalanfy, and Lazlo on general system theory. Selye . Betty Neuman's first book, The Neuman Systems Model, was published in The book included nursing process format and care plans, and was a total approach to client care.
The book included nursing process format and care plans, and was a . Neuman’s Systems Model is a holistic approach that encourages an interdisciplinary focus to health promotion, maintenance of wellness, prevention and management of stressors that are perceived.
The Model provides a wholistic, global, culturally relevant perspective for inter-disciplinary health care. I wish to thank the Neuman Trustees and healthcare colleagues who increasingly demonstrate its value in global applications.
