About this book


This book is part of the Nursing Models in Action Series, which provides in-depth theory and practical applications of the major nursing models. Roys Model allows nurses to examine both physiological and psychosocial issues related to the patients and their care. By confronting the way that individuals react to stress, nurses using Roys Model can achieve a holistic assessment and resulting quality of care. This book will provide the reader with a clear, easily understood review of the adaptation model and its application in practice. The authors of this book are all experienced teachers, who provide invaluable information on how to overcome conceptual and practical problems in the use of the model, using examples from their clinical experiences.
