Background A conceptual model representing nurses' perceptions of the transition experience has been developed to summarise interpretation of the study's findings and provide a conceptual understanding of the transition process. The model illustrates the transition process as experienced by the critically ill patients and their families, nurses' understanding of transition and their response to the patients' and families' experience. Justification The transition process is seen as three interrelated transition processes (Figure 1) Continuous transition process. Patients' and families' transition experience. Nurses'response. This model is compared with two other conceptual models-'Transition Theory' by Schlossberg (1981) (see Figure 8.2 next page) and'ExperiencingTransition: Middle RangeTheory'by Meleis et al. (2000) to distinguish the simllarities and differences of the components of transition. Transition Theory' has three components: transition, the transition process and coping with transition. lt illustrates an individual transition experience, how the individual reacts to transition or the reactions of the people surrounding the individual. Meleis et al.'s (2000) 'Middle Range Theory' of transition, which illustrates transition experience related to nursing and organisation of patients' health and life, consists of six components: types and patterns of transition; properties of transition experiences; transition condition, including facilitators and inhibitors; process indicators; outcome indicators; and nursing therapeutics. Nurses need, or will encounter, these experiences when working with patients and their family members during transitions.
