Margaret Newman's Theory of Health as Expanding Consciousness and a Nursing Intervention from a Unitary Perspective.

Author information

The NPO Newman Theory/Research/Practice Study Society, Tokyo, Japan.


This mini-review aims to introduce Margaret Newman's theory of health as expanding consciousness and caring partnership as a nursing intervention. Emanating from a unitary and transformative perspective of nursing, caring partnership enables nurses to identify with cancer patients as well as to help the patients find meaning in their situation and their lives. In genuine patient-nurse interactions, both patients and nurses experience higher levels of consciousness.
