About this book

Introduction

A person's biological, psychological and social systems are the basis of Orem's self-care model of nursing. Self-care means the activities to maintain life, health and well-being which individuals perform. The model emphasises personal responsibility, holistic approaches and state of health and well-being rather than ill-health.
