Callista roy s definition of nursing l.jpg

Callista Roy’s Definition of Nursing

  • A scientific discipline that is practice-oriented.

  • A theoretical system of knowledge which prescribes a process of analysis and action r/t the care of the ill or potentially ill.

  • An interpersonal process that is initiated by the individual’s maladaptation to changes in the environment.

  • Nursing actions are directed to reduce or

    removing stimuli and to enhancing the adaptive level of the individual.

Nursing the 4 modes l.jpg

Nursing: The 4 Modes

  • Physiological mode- 5 basic physiological

    needs (Oxygenation, nutrition, elimination, activity and

    rest, and protection) and 4 regulator processes.

  • Self concept-The composition of beliefs and feelings that

    a person holds about himself.

  • Interdependence- maintaining integrity. Involves a willingness and ability to love, respect, and value others and to accept love.

  • Output-outcome of the system. The person’s behaviors characterized as adaptive responses or ineffective responses.

Goals of nursing l.jpg

Goals of Nursing

  • The promotion of adaptation in each of 4 modes: physiological needs, self concept, role function, interdependence thereby contributing to the person’s health, quality of life or death with dignity.

  • Nursing aims to increase the adaptive responses and to decrease ineffective responses.

Catchment release mechanism l.jpg

Catchment/Release Mechanism

  • Overall, her theory proposes that a primary goal of nursing be the "promotion of Patient adaptation.“

  • Thus, when a person is not adapting positively, he is of concern to nursing.

  • Once a person manifests effective behavior, he

    no longer needs nursing attention
