许多医疗机构至今仍在使用这一理论，并已产生了积极的结果，尽管它是在近60年前发展起来的(Petiprin, 2016)。应用这一理论的结果是可见的和准确的，因为它指导护士改善护理，他们提供一个良好的组织和有条不紊的方式。我将这一理论的内容运用到我的日常护理实践中，发现is提高了我的评估能力和以病人为中心的护理技能，并帮助我获得自主权。这一理论在护理实践的现实世界中得到了应用。运用这一理论所需要的唯一技能或教育是护理。在这个理论中列出的护理问题、技巧和步骤是明确的，容易遵循的，任何护士以病人为中心的护理都是可以理解的(Duffy, Donnell， & Snowden, 2014)。该理论的内容，当应用于护理行业，可以导致有益的结果，病人的健康。如果在意见上测试结果将表明，当应用这一理论到任何护理实践，结果将是令人信服的和成功的，当它是正确的。当我们定义护理时，我发现很多人都能成功地描述它。其中一个让我印象深刻的是，“护理是为病人或对病人做一些事情，或提供病人信息，目的是满足需求，增加或恢复自助能力，或减轻损害。””(Petiprin, 2016)。Abdellah的21个护理问题理论、技能和步骤指导护士实现这一目标。总的来说，这个理论是一个可以被使用的今天，仍将发挥积极的作用，在病人的结果。该理论清晰，简洁，易于阅读，理解和遵循没有困难的任何护士。这一理论的主要缺陷是，它被证明是高度集中在以护士为中心的护理，把病人为中心的背景放在次要地位。Abdallah的理论增强了护理评估、问题解决和批判性思维能力，这些能力是识别病人问题和为病人充分制定护理计划所必需的。
Many healthcare settings still today utilize this theory and have had positive outcomes from it even though it was developed almost sixty years ago (Petiprin, 2016). The outcomes of using this theory are observable and accurate as it guides nurses to improve the care they provide in a well-organized and methodical manner. I use the contents of this theory in my nursing practice daily and have found that is has improved my assessment and patient-centered care skills, along with helping me gain autonomy.The theory is used in the real world of the nursing practice when it was developed and remains in use today. The only skills or education needed to utilize this theory is that of nursing. The listed nursing problems, skills, and steps, in this theory, are clear, easy to follow and understandable to any nurse practicing patient-centered care (Duffy, Donnell, & Snowden, 2014). The theory’s content, when applied in the nursing profession, can lead to beneficial results of the patient’s health. If tested in opinion the results would show that when applying this theory to any nursing practice the results will be convincing and successful when it is followed correctly.When we define nursing, I found that many can describe what it is successfully. One that stood out to me was, “nursing care is doing something for or to the patient or giving the patient information with the goals of meeting needs, increasing or restoring self-help ability, or alleviating impairments.” (Petiprin, 2016). Abdellah’s 21 nursing problems theory, skills, and steps guide nurses to achieve this. Overall this theory is one that can be used today that will still play a positive roll in the patient’s outcome. The theory is clear, concise, easy to read, understand and follow without difficulty for any nurse. The main flaw of the theory is that it has shown to be highly concentrated towards nurse-centered care which places the patient-centered context on the back burner. Abdallah’s theory has enhanced the nursing assessment and problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities required to recognize a patient’s problem and adequately formulate a nursing care plan for the patient .
