The Roper, Logan and Tierney model in practice, 9 Feb. 2004
I'm a first year student nurse and bought this to help with an assignment as my tutors discuss this model more than any other, and it is actually used in practice.
I have found it invaluable as not only does it show the model and the 12 activities & their influencing factors, it shows how to use it when you're actually out there on the wards or in the community.
It provides case studies, gives you exercises to think about, appendixes of care plans and assessments, and even gives examples of questions to ask to establish the clients normal Activities of Living. Physiological and other diagrams are kept simple but very understandable, and the whole concept is explained in clear reader friendly language.
As a result of seeing my copy, two of my student mates have bought their own. I will use this book throughout my course and I imagine for a long time afterwards. If you are going to buy just one theory book I would say make it this one.
