ication of Nursing Theory to Practice
A 16 page paper discussing the case of Mr. K, an 81-year-old heart failure patient hospitalized so that his medication can be adjusted to his changing condition. The paper provides details of Mr. K, followed by discussion of Orem’s self care and Roy’s adaptation models. Both the Orem and Roy models are useful with this patient. Though the end goals are the same in each, the methods of achieving those goals are adaptable to Mr. K’s specific situation. Both of the models help to negate reference to any specific patient in a dehumanizing manner, but keeps attention on the patient framed in terms of an individual with unique qualities. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
