Solution Preview

The article you provided describes how Roy focused on the interdependence between family members when one or more member is in the ICU. When one person is seriously ill, it has a strong effect on the entire equilibrium of the family unit. The same goes for the other way around. The family members can have a large effect on the well-being and healing power of the ill member. It is imperative that you acknowledge this interdependence when conducting a family assessment using this theoretical approach.

Roy believed that humans are continuously interacting with the environment in pursuit of adaptation (changing in order to be better suited for one's environment). She believed that a person's (or family's) adaptation occurs in 4 different modes: physiologic (survival), self-concept (growth), role ...

Solution Summary

This solution describes the major components of Roy's adaptation model and how it can be applied to family assessments.

Nursing conceptual models

Select a client concern and then analyze that concern using the approaches of three nursing conceptual models. My paper needs to be between 2,100 to 2,450 words the cover and references pages are not included in the word count.

The three nursing models that I would like to utilize are: Imogene King, Betty Neuman, and Sister Callista Roy. My client concern is Ageing.

1. Describe a client concern that is relevant to nursing
2. Describe three approaches to the concern using three nursing conceptual models
3. Suggest approaches that are congruent with the nursing models chosen
4. Describe the implications of using the nursing models selected in practice
5. Describe at least 3 benefits gained from examining practice concerns using a nursing model

At least 10 professional references, including no more than 2 web sites, are used to develop paper; therefore, can you provide the full references and I can then go to the library to research further.

Thank you for your guidance!!
