ERIKSON'S STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT - HLTEN503B Contribute to Client Assessment and Developing Nursing Care Plans Knowledge of wellness, pathophysiology and clinical skills allow nurses to provide care with the goal of maintaining, improving or returning the patient to health as well as providing for the needs of patients with chronic illnesses. These aspects of nursing care along with the growth and developmental needs of hospitalised individuals across the lifespan combine to enable nurses to construct nursing care plans which apply to the physical health of the client and the psychological, cognitive, maturity, social and moral needs of each individual client. Nurses caring for clients in the hospital environment can be guided in their practice by relating the approaches of theorists such as Erik Erikson to address their clients' social and personality needs (Funnell, Koutoukidis, Lawrence 2010, pp. 184-185). Erikson's theory of the 'Eight Stages of Development' describes a lifelong process through which human personality evolves as the individual responds to their environment, psychological experiences, biological influences and social interactions.
