Reading reflection chapters 29 & 30
In Chapter 29, the Roy Adaptation Model will be discussed, which stresses the importance for nursing to adapt. The Roy Adaptation Model states that people are always adapting to new stimuli. According to the model, nurses can assist in this process of adaptation by providing support and promoting coping methods. This model also stresses the need for holistic care, as well as the connection between the person, their environment and society.
The Orem Self-Care Deficit Theory is discussed in Chapter 30, which stresses the importance of maintaining good health. This theory suggests that people have a tendency to care for themselves, but they may require assistance at certain times. Nurses can help by assessing individuals’ self-care abilities, providing education and resources, and assisting with self-care activities as needed.
Both the Roy Adaptation Model as well as the Orem Self-Care Deficit Theory highlight the importance of individualized and holistic nursing care. These theories can help nurses to provide more efficient care by addressing the individual needs of patients.
