Life Closure with the Roy Adaption Model
The author of this paper examines the initial conceptualization of death and dying theory within the context of the Roy adaptation model (RAM) and compares it with current knowledge development. An evolved RAM with its philosophic assumptions provides a framework by which to add existential components of spirituality, life meaning, and purposeful existence that were absent in the original work on death and dying.
