NANDA International Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification 2018-2020, Eleventh Edition is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA International (NANDA-I).
Fully updated and revised by editors T. Heather Herdman, PhD, RN, FNI, and Shigemi Kamitsuru, PhD, RN, FNI, this is a must-have resource for all nursing students, professional nurses, nurse educators, nurse informaticists, and nurse administrators. Beginning with chapters on the terminology and how to apply it in practice before continuing on to definitions and classification, this text is an up-to-date and validated book on nursing diagnosis worldwide.
Moving beyond merely a list of terms, opening chapters include case studies and vignettes so students can work through the entire diagnostic process. Throughout the chapters, clinical reasoning tips offer readers a method to work through validating or refuting a diagnosis, while a question and answer chapter offers essential guidance on nursing diagnosis, defining characteristics, and risk factors. This text is essential for nurses to understand assessment, to link assessment to diagnosis and clinical reasoning, and to apply taxonomic structure at the bedside.
The diagnoses contained in NANDA International Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification, 2018-2020, Eleventh Edition, are to nursing what ICD is to physicians and DSM is to mental health professionals. EHR programs populated with NANDA-I support healthcare organizations by gathering data and by allowing nurses to attain excellence in assessment and, through that excellence, to prevent money-costing incidents.
