This record group consists of records from group or institutions with which Orem was affiliated or in contact. These include the Nursing Development Conference Group, the International Orem Society, the Orem Study Group, and other small organizations.
The Nursing Development Conference Group membership varied over time. Prominent members included Sarah E. Allison, Joan E. Backscheider, Cora S. Balmat, Mary B. Collins, Judy Crews, M. Lucille Kinlein, Janina Lapniewski, Melba Anger Malatesta, Sheila M. McCarthy, Joan Nettleton, Dorothea Orem, Louise Hartnett Rauckhorst, and Helen St. Denis. Input from Oremâs students and colleagues contributed to the development of the Self-care Deficit Theory of Nursing over time. The Nursing Model Committee of the Nursing Faculty of The Catholic University of America and the Nursing Development Conference Group, an offshoot of the first group, both contributed much to the development of ideas. In 1973 the NDCG published Concept Formalization in Nursing: Process and Product. In 1980, Orem published a revised edition of Nursing: Concepts of Practice reflecting the influences of the NDCG.
This record group consists of Orem's records relating to the Nursing Development Conference Group. It includes correspondence, meeting minutes and notes, as well as materials about seminars led by the NDCG.

The purposes of the Society are to: establish a world-wide network for interaction among nurses interested in Orem's conceptualizations of nursing; expand, refine, and clarify understanding of Orem's conceptualizations of nursing; provide avenues for gathering, organizing, and disseminating knowledge developed in relation to Orem's conceptualizations of nursing; facilitate the use of Orem's conceptualizations of nursing as a basis for nursing education, practice, research, and theory development; advance nursing science by promoting scientific and scholarship activity.
This record group consists of correspondence and publications related to the International Orem Society given to Orem as a member of the Society.
