Dorothea Orem: Self-Care Deficit Theory
 
 

Encapsulating the work of one of the classic nursing theorists, Dorothea Orem, this booklet provides a unique, easily understood overview of Orem′s theory. The origin of her theory is presented, assumptions underlying the theory expounded, and the major concepts and propositions explained. By including excellent examples and a glossary of important terms, the author helps the reader make the transition from theory to practice. Dorothea Orem will be extremely useful to undergraduate students and nursing professionals.

About the series:

"Designed to provide a concise description of the conceptual frameworks and theories in nursing which have emerged in the last quarter century. Though short and succinct, they provide a useful overall view for those studying or actively involved in nursing as well as for those interested in the profession and its development . . . . A highly recommended series."  

--Journal of the Institute of Health Education

"Slim, yet a wealth of information is contained within their pages. The most difficult of issues is articulated in a manner which enlightens rather than clouds understanding. King′s model is notoriously difficult to explain to beginners, but Evans does so magnificently."
