Nursing Outcomes Classification (Noc) 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) is a comprehensive, standardized classification of patient/client outcomes developed to evaluate the effects of nursing interventions. Standardized outcomes are necessary for documentation in electronic records, for use in clinical information systems, and for the development of nursing knowledge and the education of professional nurses. An outcome is stated as a variable concept representing an individual, family, or community condition that is measurable along a continuum and responsive to nursing interventions. The outcomes are developed for use in all settings and with all patient populations. NOC outcomes are for use with individuals, families and communities. The 2nd edition of NOC contains 260 outcomes listed in alphabetical order and grouped for ease of use into 7 domains and 29 classes in a taxonomic structure. The 7 domains are: Functional Health, Physiologic Health, Psychosocial Health, Health Knowledge & Behavior, Perceived Health, Family Health, and Community Health. Each outcome has a definition, a list of indicators that can be used to evaluate patient status in relation to the outcome, a five-point Likert scale to measure patient status, and a short list of references used in the development of the outcome. The outcomes are developed for use across the care continuum and therefore can be used to follow patient outcomes throughout an illness episode or over an extended period of care. Each outcome has a unique code number that facilitates the use of the outcomes in computerized clinical information systems and the manipulation of data to answer questions about health care quality and effectiveness. This edition of NOC presents 70 new and 20 revised outcomes. Several family and community outcomes are included in the new family- and community-level domains. Expanded implementation examples and updated linkages with NANDA 1999-2000 diagnoses are also featured.
