Clinical Applications of Nursing Diagnosis: Adult, Child, Women's, Psychiatric, Gerontic, and Home Health Considerations / Edition 2

This book is designed as a guide to using North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA) nursing diagnoses as the primary base for the planning of care. Many expected outcomes, target dates, nursing actions, and evaluation algorithms are given as guides. New to this fourth edition is a comprehensive life span approach, and nursing interventions and outcomes focusing on nursing diagnosis rather than etiologic factors. This fourth edition incorporates new and revised diagnoses through the 2000 NANDA conference, proposed NANDA Taxonomy 2, and NIC and NOC system domains and classes.
