The use of models for the care of chronic health problems such as cirrhosis guides the nurses to care about acquiring analytical thinking skills, ability to identify and develop goals. One of these models is Levine"s Conservation Model and the aim of the model is to ensure the integrity of the individual using conservation principles to promote harmony/compliance. A nurse can achieve the objectives of the model through the conservation of energy, structure, individual and social integrity.
