The paper discusses how Orem sees the person as a biopsychosocial being, capable of self-care. The paper explains how the theory allows for a means to approach every patient in every situation, especially a patient with limitations. The paper stresses how, because the focus is always on the patient, the patient becomes an active agent in her health and recovery.
From the Paper:"Since I was curious as to whether nurses actually make use of nursing theorists, I asked one particular nurse whom I admired if she relied on a theorist. This nurse works on a head injury unit and all the patients respond warmly to her. Her response was that she uses Orem's self-care deficit theory because it provides a practical approach that can be used with every nursing situation. She explained that whenever you have a patient with limitations, then self-care theory is perfect. Orem's theory offers a rational basis for planning and implementing nursing care. From what she said, I decided to learn more."
