More/Other Information:

Mr. San Roman attributes his medical philosophy to the Theory of Self-Efficacy, from Middle Range Theorist Dr. Barbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP. This theory states, "self-efficacy expectations and outcome expectations are not only influenced by behavior, but also by verbal encouragement, psychological situations, exposure to role models, or self-modeling." In summary, as providers, we need to instill positive focus and empowerment through understanding the individual's knowledge vs. personal experience, vs. perceived experience. What are the barriers, the benefits? What is their support system and how do we help patients achieve their goals? Lastly, understanding that both internal and external influences can't always be controlled, but are to be expected, will help the patient commit to their plan of care.

Mr. San Roman enjoys spending time with family outdoors, cooking, mountain biking, wood working, reading, and watching his kids play sports or participate in 4-H activities.
