The Peplau’s theory was developed by theorist Hildegard E Peplau and first published in 1952. Peplau’s theory is also referred as psychodynamic nursing which understands one’s own behavior. Within this theory, the major concepts outline the central focus to nursing is to help others and identify their felt difficulties. This is done by applying principles of human relations to all problems that arise via a therapeutic approach.

Teach Back Method
The teach back method is a way to confirm that the educator has explained to the patient the relevant information and in a manner that the patient understands.
This is confirmed when the patient can elaborate back in their own words to the educator what was established within the education session.
This method can also aid in the clinician identifying explanations and communication strategies that are most commonly misunderstood by patients.
Within the medical ward the teach back method isn't only utilised when giving an education session but also when preparing a patient for discharge, when a patient is struggling with directions and elaborating what the doctors have said.
This method implements communication that is clear and concise.
