Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a progressive chronic disease that progresses with exacerbations that cause significant mortality and morbidity. This disease causes physical, psychosocial and emotional deficiencies along with respiratory distress. It also restricts the patient’s life activities. In this case, the nurse should strengthen the self-man- agement of the individual. Self-care must be carried out on the basis of self-management. Orem self-care is defined as actions performed by the individual to maintain the life, health and well-being of the individual. According to Orem’s self-care theory, the individual should take care of himself and take the responsibility of care. An individual may need a nurs- ing process for self-care needs that are universal, developmental and devoid of health. According to the problems determined in the nursing process, professional nursing care is carried out with evidence-based nursing interventions. In this article, it is aimed to diagnose the patient with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease within the framework of Orem Self Care Deficiency Theory and to create an evidence-based nursing care plan by classification of nursing interventions and care outcomes together with nursing diagnoses.
