Resumen

QUEIROS, Paulo Joaquim Pina; VIDINHA, Telma Sofia dos Santos  y  FILHO, António José de Almeida. Self-care: Orem’s theoretical contribution to the Nursing discipline and profession. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2014, vol.serIV, n.3, pp.157-164. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV14081.

Background: As a practical human science, Nursing creates and uses an exclusive body of knowledge, affirming itself as a scientific discipline with its own characteristics. Theoretical thinking has evolved in a journey of major conceptual richness, thus generating theories and concepts with interpretative value of nurses’ performance. One of the most often cited theories is the Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory (SCDNT) of Dorothea Orem, which was developed between 1959 and 1985 and incorporated the nursing model proposed by the author. Objective: To critically address the SCDNT through a theoretical study, which implied the reading, analysis and discussion of different bibliographic materials. Main topics under analysis: The SCDNT and associated conceptual terms. Conclusion: As a particular combination of conceptual properties common to all nursing circumstances, the SCDNT is relevant to guide nursing knowledge, clinical practice, education and management, as well as create structures from which other theories and concepts are developed.

Palabras clave : Nursing Theory; self-care; nursing science.
