From the Paper:"Based on the assessment, the nurse may provide different degrees of "compensation" for the individual patient's "deficits" or relative inability to care for himself/herself(Orem, 1985). The theory is consistent with notions of wellness, preventive intervention, and patient empowerment that have been observed to foster recovery in a variety of venues and with a variety of illnesses (Shea, 1992; Neergaard, 1990)."
