Abstract

Using a qualitative research methodology, the utility of the Roy adaptation model as a framework for nursing practice within a hospital setting was investigated. The level of integration of the model into practice varied among nurses. The model was generally found to be useful in focusing, organizing, and directing nurses' thoughts and actions regarding patient care, resulting in a perception of improved quality of nursing process and patient outcomes. Prior education on the Roy model and participation in professional advancement activities facilitated model integration, while lack of education and resistance to change inhibited implementation of model-based practice.
