Overview

This text contains all the major Diagnoses listed by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA)—standard diagnoses that are meant to create a standard plan of care for patients with any range of ailments. The Twelfth Edition of the Manual of Nursing Diagnosis is updated and organized to meet the needs of both novices and expert diagnosticians. Sample admission assessment guides are included for the family, community, and individual (adults, infants, young children, and critical care clients). Sections on how diagnoses can be used to guide questions and observations beyond the basic assessment and how to use diagnostic categories in other clinical activities (for example, critical paths, quality improvement) provide a quick reference.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Linnea M. Axman
This updated pocket manual of North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA)-approved nursing diagnoses includes quick reference to functional assessment and documentation. This is a quick reference to 22 new diagnoses approved by NANDA. The evolving diagnostic language of the nursing profession is included, incorporating new research on diagnostic categories and thus facilitating critical thinking and providing "cues" to diagnoses. This manual is intended for nurses, faculty, and nursing students. Assessment guides are included for individuals, families, and communities. Diagnoses specific to infant, child, adult, and critical care nursing are included. Updated nursing diagnoses, a review of the nursing process, and use of nursing diagnoses in clinical practice are all included. Bold-faced type indicates those diagnoses that are currently approved by NANDA. Additional diagnoses are included that the author has found useful in clinical practice. Although this book contains references to family and community assessments, these sections are weak. In the community section there is an out-of-date (1984) reference to guide community health assessment. The section on family assessment appears to be an individual assessment made to fit a family. I believe these sections of the book are of little practical use. In my experience, family and community health nurses do not routinely use nursing diagnoses. For nurses and institutions that use nursing diagnoses, this is an important reference. There are 22 additional diagnostic categories. I believe the best use will be the inpatient hospital setting.

Preface

From the Preface...

This is the ninth edition of the Manual of Nursing Diagnosis. Nine editions underscore the fact that nurses find nursing diagnoses useful in describing their clinical judgments about health-related conditions, projecting outcomes, and planning interventions. Also, in practice and education there is widespread use, both nationally and internationally, of the functional health pattern typology in the manual. This format provides an easily learned framework for assessment and critical thinking within the judgment process. Assessment guidelines and diagnoses are grouped under the same functional health patterns' format. This consistency facilitates the movement from assessment data to diagnosis...
