This book is a collection of many of the presentations and writings that are not included in her previous books. It presents a fascinating view of the development of Orem's theory of self care deficit over a forty-year period, along with its ramifications for nursing education and practice.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jayalakshmi Jambunathan, PhD, MSN, MA, BSN, BSc (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book is a collection of papers of Dorothea Orem and provides insight into self-care deficit theory development and the range of Orem's thinking about nursing over the years.
Purpose: The purpose is to enlighten nurses who are practitioners, educators, and researchers on the development of Orem's ideas about nursing theory education and practice over time. This is a much needed book as it historically and chronologically reflects time-specific conditions, events, and issues in nursing about which nurses had questions and had sought answers.
Audience: The book is general in its orientation and can hence appeal to a larger audience — practicing nurses, educators, and researchers, all of whom can ensure care concomitant with nursing education and research. The authors of the book seem to be credible authorities as they have worked closely with Orem in presenting a historical and chronological document that is conceptually rich and pithy, without sacrificing the intent of Orem's theory and her ideas on theory development with implications for education, practice, and administration.
Features: The book covers the historical and cultural context of the roots of the development of Orem's self care deficit theory for nursing education, practice and nursing science. The book is insightful in the way it captures the fundamental questions related to theory development and its implications for practice, education, and research. The chronological and systematic way of presentation helps the reader to understand Orem's continued thought process related to developing her conceptualizations for the theory. The chapters on international perspectives on Orem's work are noteworthy for their delineation of the utilization and application of the self-care deficit theory in education, practice, research, and administration, cross-culturally. The figures and tables provided in almost all chapters make for easy reading and the book itself is delightful in its presentation of the historical context of the development of Orem's ideas.
Assessment: The book provides an illuminating and quintessential portrayal of the historical context of the inner working and ideas of Orem, relative to her self-care deficit theory development. The book will be valuable and useful to all practicing nurses contemplating application of the theory as well as to educators and researchers teaching and contributing further to the development of nursing science.
