Research Proposal Draft Theoretical Framework The prime objective of the research study attempts to develop an illustrative elaboration on the effectiveness of nurses in teaching patients on smoking cessation. In this regard, the major problem to the nurses is to be highly effective in managing the cessation of smoking practices among patients who are intensely habituated to such habits. As smoking is considered quite addictive in nature, the effectiveness of nurses in this regard becomes highly challenging that expands beyond conventional medical care facilities to providing psychological assistance to the patients. Nevertheless, the theory of trans-theoretical model greatly supports the nurses in their objectives. In this regard, trans-theoretical model supports an individual to change patient’s behavior overcoming such cessation (Kolundzija, Gajic, Misic-Pavkov & Maras, 2011).
The theory of trans-theoretical model suggests of the certain stages of behavioral changes, which are highly applicable in controlling the cessation of smoking. In this regard, pre-contemplation is regarded as the stage in which, the patients do not intend to change. The next stage is denoted as contemplation, where the patients realize the need of behavioral changes. The subsequent stage is the preparation, where the patients intend to implement certain actions for the change. Correspondingly, in the following stage i.e. action, the patients are encouraged and driven towards efficiently changing his/her behavior to a non-smoking individual. The next stage of change according to trans-theoretical model is maintenance. This is quite an important stage, where patients need to maintain his/her non-smoking behavior. The last stage in the process is Termination, where the patients are noted to have the desire to quit their addiction (Boston University School of Public Health, 2013). Thus, it is also evident that the theory of trans-theoretical model is highly applicable to the current project related to cessation of smoking (Kolundzija, Gajic, Misic-Pavkov & Maras, 2011).
The underneath diagram herewith depicts the stages of behavioral change as per the theory of trans-theoretical model that will be implemented in the study initiated.
