Adaptation Model

A conceptual model of nursing developed by nursing theorist Sister Callista Roy that is based on the individual's adaptation to environmental stimuli. In this model, the goal of nursing is to promote adaptive physical, physiological, self-concept, and group identities, role function, and interdependence responses.

Adaptation Model is a sample topic from the Taber's Medical Dictionary.
