Description At A Glance

The 2015–2017 edition is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I.

Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. The 2015–2017 edition of the classic and internationally recognised text has been rigorously updated and revised, and now provides more linguistically congruent diagnoses as a result of the Diagnostic Development Committee’s attentiveness to understanding the translation of the diagnostic label, definition, defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors. Each of the 235 diagnoses presented are supported by definitions as well as defining characteristics and related factors, or risk factors. Each new and revised diagnosis is based on the latest global evidence, and approved by expert nurse diagnosticians, researchers, and educators.

New to this edition:
  • 26 brand new nursing diagnoses and 13 revised diagnoses
  • Updates, changes, and revision to the vast majority of the nursing diagnosis definitions, in particular the Health Promotion and Risk Diagnoses
  • A standardization of diagnostic indicator terms (defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors) to further aid clarity for readers and clinicians
  • All introductory chapters are written at an undergraduate nursing level, and provide critical information needed for nurses to understand assessment, its link to diagnosis, and the purpose and use of taxonomic structure for the nurse at the bedside
  • A new chapter, focusing on Frequently Asked Questions, representing the most common questions received through the NANDA-I website, and at global conferences
  • Five nursing diagnoses have been re-slotted within the NANDA-I taxonomy, following a review of the current taxonomic structure
  • Coding of all diagnostic indicator terms is now available for those using electronic versions of the terminology

The editors of this first edition of 25 Landmark Trials in Cardiology are to be commended for their efforts and Skyscape interface makes it more helpful. They bring together practical, up-to-date reviews of the major clinical trials that have had such a positive impact on patient survival and length of life. David Sackett describes evidence-based medicine as the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients (BMJ 13 Jan 1996). All that separates us from quackery is the judicious use of scientific evidence, this book provides that evidence.
