Perspectives on human response to health and illness.

Abstract

Nursing's domain has been defined as the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to health problems, yet debate rages over what "human responses" are. Without clear meanings for this and other terms used in nursing, the profession cannot claim that its practice is scientifically based, nor can it share that base among disciplines.
