Question 1: Examine this case study through the dependency cycle model (Figure 14.3). The outer arrows show a progression through varying stages of dependency. The inner circle represents who can be involved in the dependency cycle. Where are Jane and Dan?
Question 2: Using the basic dependent-care system model (Fig. 14.4), assess Dan and Jane. Identify the basic conditioning factors (BCFs) for each. What is the effect of Dan’s BCFs on his self-care demands? Continue on to diagnose Dan’s self-care deficit and resulting dependent-care deficit. Now assess Jane’s self-care system.
Question 3: Design a nursing system that addresses Jane’s self-care system as she increases her role as dependent-care agent for Dan.
