The McGill model
The McGill Model of Nursing was developed and refined under the guidance of Dr. Moyra Allen. Dr. Allen envisioned nursing as taking a unique, active and complementary role in providing health care. Within the McGill Model of Nursing, nurses engage the person/family to actively participate in learning about health. Over the years, the McGill Model has been developed, refined, tested and implemented in various practice settings and has gained widespread acceptance in Canada and elsewhere as a useful framework for nursing practice.
