Case Study For Philo Theo using the theory of roy model adaptation
1. Presented by: Dave Jay Sibi. Manriquez RN.
Roy's model offers a classification for stressors that may affect adaptation. Her system
concentrates on adaptive behaviors and the set of processes by which an individual adapts
to environmental stressors. It is composed of philosophic assumptions, classes of stimuli
and coping mechanisms.
Person: A biopyschosocial being creating a united system that searches for balance
Health: a state - adaptation due to successful coping with stressors
a process - responding positively to environmental changes
Illness: ineffective coping on a continuum from death toward adaptation
Environment: external surroundings and influences that affect a person's
Nursing: Foster sucessful coping through manipulation of stimuli. It can help man
adapt to changes in his physiological needs, self-concept, role function, and interdependent
relations during health and illness
Adaptation: the process and result where thinking and feeling persons use conscious
awareness and choice to produce human and environmental integration. Roy's Adaptation
Model is composed of modes of behavior, classes of stimuli, and two subsystems.
Four adaptive modes of behavior resulting from coping: physiologic, self-concept, role
function, & interdependent relationships
Classes of stimuli:The combined effect of these stimuli show the person's adaptation level.
A person's adaptation level determines the zone that shows the range of stimulation that
will have an adaptive response. If additional stimuli land outside the zone, the person is
unable to respond postively, and thus, ineffective coping occurs.
