As you explain how the adaption theory by Roy is conducive to nursing areas of practice and why, I see his ideas as highly applicable overall.

Roy's theory embodies a strong focus or targeted approach, seeing the patient in a state of continuous "interaction with a changing environment" (http://currentnursing.com/nursing_theory/Roy_adaptation_model.html). One area of applicability is patient feedback. Since Roy's notion is a holistic one, he stresses patients' values and opinions. Cultural competency is likely another area where his ideas can be integrated.

Roy's theory also embraces "4 modes of adaptation: physiologic needs, self- concept, role function and inter-dependence" ...
