Adaptation Models

Adaptation Model is a model of psychiatric nursing care, which integrates biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental, and legal-ethical aspects of patient care into a unified framework for practice. The Stuart Stress Adaptation Model of health and wellness provides a consistent nursing-oriented framework 

"Nursing care is provided within a biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental, and legal-ethical context." Health/illness and adaptation/maladaptation (nursing world view) are two distinct continuums.
