Stress: An Analysis and Application to Rehabilitation Nursing

Academic Article


  • Stress, an integral part of life and a major consideration in the development of stroke, is central to nursing's holistic philosophy. Stress has been defined in a variety of ways, but now there is increasing consensus for a definition of stress that incorporates individual, cognitive, and affective components. The purpose of this article is to (a) describe the development and evolution of the concept of stress, (b) analyze the three major conceptual approaches to stress, and (c) apply the three approaches to the stroke patient using a case study. 1988 Association of Rehabilitation Nurses
