Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The Roy adaptation model concepts of stimuli, coping mechanisms, and modes of adaptation have been translated into several middle-range concepts and measured using existing and new instruments. The concept of adaptation level, however, has rarely been used in Roy adaptation model-based research. This paper presents a description of how the Roy adaptation model concept of adaptation level was translated into the logically congruent middle-range theory concept of adjustment. A single-item instrument, the Adjustment Scale, is identified as one way to measure adjustment.
