1 Review

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.

Este livro faz parte da minha monografia, pois de acordo com a Teoria do Auto-cuidado de OREM, é possível identificar as dificuldades do cuidador e traçar de forma objetiva o plano de cuidados.
