Book Description

A nursing diagnosis is defined as a clinical judgment about individual family or community responses to actual or potential health problems or life processes which provide the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse has accountability (NANDA-I 2009). Accurate and valid nursing diagnoses guide the selection of interventions that are likely to produce the desired treatment effects and determine nurse-sensitive outcomes.

Nursing diagnoses are seen as key to the future of evidence-based professionally-led nursing care – and to more effectively meeting the need of patients. In an era of increasing electronic patient health records standardized nursing terminologies such as NANDA-I NIC and NOC provide a means of collecting nursing data that are systematically analysed within and across healthcare organizations and provide essential data for cost/benefit analysis and clinical audit.

Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. Each nursing diagnosis undergoes a rigorous assessment process by NANDA-I’s Diagnosis Development Committee with stringent criteria used to indicate the strength of the underlying level of evidence.

Each diagnosis comprises a label or name for the diagnosis a definition defining characteristics risk factors and/or related factors. Many diagnoses are further qualified by terms such as risk for effective ineffective impaired imbalanced self-care deficit readiness for disturbed decreased etc.
