Dorothea Orem
Self-Care Deficit Theory


Volume: 4
Other Titles in:
Nursing Theory

October 1991 | 72 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Encapsulating the work of a classic nursing theorist, this book provides a unique overview of Orem's Self-Care Deficit Model of Nursing.

Orem's model proposes that nursing should be especially concerned with the patient's need to move continuously towards responsible action in self-care in order to sustain life and health or to recover from disease or injury. The actions required of nurses to achieve these goals are clearly described.
