Now in its 14th edition, this respected resource offers definitive guidance on key elements of nursing diagnosis, its role in the nursing process, and its application to clinical practice. Section 1 thoroughly explains the role of nursing diagnosis in the nursing process and in care planning. Section 2 offers a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to current nursing diagnoses, including the most recent diagnoses approved by NANDA International. Section 3 focuses on collaborative problems.

Editorial Reviews

Phyllis Chelette
This book contains nursing diagnoses, interventions, and rationales related to client situations that nurses treat independently in clinical nursing practice. Although the first edition was published in 1983, this seventh edition offers a comprehensive, organized compilation of pertinent clinical information. The author's objectives focus exclusively on nursing diagnosis of client situations and includes an organized outline of nursing practice. The book contributes to the development of an acceptable, distinct system in nursing to categorize its functions and delineate its scope. The author has successfully outlined the increased use of nursing diagnosis over the last 14 years in all specialties. The targeted audience includes nursing students and experienced nurses who will find the diagnoses, interventions, and rationales useful. Experienced nurses will benefit from the discussions on outcome criteria and ethical issues. The author is a published authority on nursing diagnosis, and practices as a family nurse practitioner. In addition, there is an impressive group of contributors and consultants with advanced degrees who are experts in various clinical specialties and work throughout the U.S. and Canada. References are relevant to the chapter subjects. The majority of the references are between one and five years old, some are older, and several are considered classics. Each chapter contains from two to 20 applicable schematics, which enhance the discussion of the topics. The comprehensive table of contents includes page numbers printed close to the chapter titles allowing more efficient location of information. The inclusive index is sufficient and offers direction to findfigures and tables in the text. The appendixes include significant age-specific assessment guides and guidelines that assist in stimulating critical thinking. The appearance of the book is as an excellent professional nursing reference resource since the subject headings are easily identified, sufficiently indexed, and clearly and succinctly presented. This is a significant and useful practical resource for nurses. It is beneficial to clarify the domains of nursing and enhance the classification of its functions. This edition reflects many of the relevant changes occurring in healthcare.
