[Series 3] Nursing Development Conference Group
Creator: Nursing Development Conference Group

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 Orem’s 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.
