The goal of Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory is to decrease the self-care deficit. When patients are ill, they need assistance with care. As nurses we are there to provide the care needed while allowing the patient to perform as many tasks as they can for themselves. By allowing patients to provide care for themselves, they develop a sense of confidence and can assist them in overcoming obstacles in care. Per Meleis (2012), “Orem’s theory is categorized as a theory whose primary focus provides a framework for assessing needs of clients and developing intervention in enhancing peoples’ abilities to manage daily care for themselves and their dependents, and conserve their energy, and
(House et al., 1988) (Peterson, 1991) When coping with a disease, a patient’s social network is extremely important, as it is associated with how they comply. For chronic illness, and long-term treatment such as chemo with cancer, social support is crucial. Families are able help in many different ways, not only by love and support but also by encouragement, supervision and reminding the family member to take their medication.

The patients that had less family problems and have received aid from their spouses complied better with their dietary regimen.
Education amongst registered nurses and health care workers regarding ageism can be beneficial as Bosak (2016) states that the more educated an individual is, the more resources they have, the more likely of a positive outcome in relation to being healthy both physically and mentally. Education is essential in sculpting nursing practice within the nursing and midwifery board guidelines (2006). In-services and education sessions for health care workers on ageism could be an effective strategy when minimizing ageism within health care . Nursing is a challenging and rewarding profession that is subject to constant changes in health care provision, thus the need for in-service training programs for nurses (Norushe, Strumpher & Rooyen, 2004). In conclusion it is clear that ageism exists within health care facilities and evidently has the potential to significantly impact upon seniors which notably effects the quality of care delivered by health care workers.
Robinson et al. (2002) mentioned that APN with wide knowledge in disease progress, research, health promotion and prevention of major illness who are keen to share knowledge to patients will help patients to understand more about their conditions. Koh and Ang (2005) states that with comparison to the doctors, the APNs are more likely to spend extra time to educate patients on health promotion and life style changes and are proven with better compliance with treatments. Karnusammy (2006) also mention that in addition to educating the patient and nurse, the APN also actively involve with patients family and initiating discharge. Nurses will also gain more knowledge and build a positive relationship with the APNs.
