The clinical experience I would like to discuss involves working with diabetic children in a clinic. The discussion will consists of four parts: (a) Description of the intervention, (b) definition of the theoretical basis for the intervention, (c) the relevance of the theory to nursing practice, and (d) reference to a research article that supports the intervention as evidence.

The overall conclusion is that the Braden Self-Help Model is a powerful and useful mid-range theory for nursing.
