    This participatory action research (PAR) was aimed to (i) develop
    the post-termination of pregnancy (TOP) care model for women
    after a TOP and (ii) examine the obstacles in implementing the
    developed model for women after a TOP.

    The research processes were divided into four steps based on
    the PAR model: (i) assessing the existing care model and planning
    to develop the initial model; (ii) developing and implementing the
    developed model; (iii) revising the initial model to meet the needs
    of women after a TOP; and (iv) evaluating the results. The sample
    consisted of 12 nurses at a hospital in Southern Thailand and 60
    women after a TOP. Open-ended questions were used to collect
    data among these women. In-depth interviews, focus group
    discussion, and participant observations, were also used. Personal
    data and qualitative data were analysed by using descriptive
    statistics and content analysis, respectively. It revealed that the
    post-TOP care model for women after a TOP was a holistic care
    model comprising building an impressive relationship, having
    positive attitudes, giving advice and counselling and providing
    continuous care to meet the needs of women after a TOP. The
    identified obstacles of the model implementation were the nurses’
    overwork, stress, and weariness.
    In conclusion, in this participatory action research led nurses to
    recognise the importance of holistic care, have better attitudes
    towards women after a TOP and improve their service of giving
    advice and counselling by using the instructional media.
