Two important change theories prevalent in nursing practice include Lewin’s change theory and transtheoretical model of change. Lewin’s change model is a three stage model that includes unfreezing, change, and refreezing. The core concepts of this model are driving forces, restraining forces, and equilibrium. Lewin stated for this model that it is important to understand the “refreezing” process as without this, changes revert back to previous ways. In the transtheoretical model of change, the focus is intentional change. Specifically, this model helps to explain differences in success during treatment for a range of psychological and physical health problems. Some of the core concepts are: the process of change, decisional balance, self-efficacy, decisional balance, and temptation. The stages of change for this model include precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and relapse.
These two models of change are similar in that both pertain specifically to human systems and focus on important steps of change to bring in new habits for better outcomes. However, they are very different in that the transtheoretical model pertains specifically to health care and health problems. The stages for this model are also more in-depth than those of Lewin’s model of change. My mentor stated that she most often utilizes the transtheoretical model in practice as a nurse. She stated that the stages of change, such as contemplation, allow her to understand the perspectives of patients and how she can tailor her care and education to their specific needs to allow for successful change.
