Self Care Theory in Nursing: Selected Papers of Dorothea Orem

By Katherine McLaughlin Renpenning; Susan G. Taylor | Go to book overview

CHAPTER 34 Work to Be Done
Self-care deficit nursing theory, from a philosophy of science perspective, is knowledge that is both theoretical and practical. This knowledge is a part of and foundational for continuing development of the practical science of nursing. The theory's conceptual constructs articulate with facts and points of theory from other fields, thus indicating areas of need for development of applied nursing sciences.The knowledge expressed in the articulated theories of nursing system, self-care deficit, and self-care is descriptively explanatory of the end products and the results that nurses seek to make and achieve for and with persons under their care, the proper objects of nurses' attention and actions, and the structure of nurses' actions to make the products and achieve the human results proper to nursing. The usefulness of self-care deficit nursing theory is recognized by nurses who have mastered the formalized concepts and relationships of the theory and have made them dynamic in concrete singular situations of nursing practice. Usefulness is also recognized by teachers of nursing and curriculum developers who have used the theory in the development of nursing courses and in the selection of and negotiating for courses foundational to the nursing curricula. Researchers have been concerned with the validity of the conceptual structure of self-care deficit nursing theory and with the values of the constructs by populations and types of cases.There is work to be done if self-care deficit nursing theory is to be used in further development of the practical science of nursing and in the structuring of nursing knowledge. Some broad suggestions are made.
