This quick-reference tool has what you need to select the appropriate diagnosis to plan your patients' care effectively. The 15th Edition features all the latest nursing diagnoses and updated interventions.
New to this Edition:
"This quick reference guide contains sample assessment tools, care plans, and concept mapping information essentials for nurses and nursing students. While there are other quick reference resources available on nursing diagnoses, none provide the detail necessary to promote a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of nursing diagnoses, priority-based care, and their associated rationales in one handy reference."
-- Mary Nasta, MSN, RN-BC, OCN (Monmouth University School of Nursing and Health Studies)
Nurses in all clinical practice and research settings will find this guide helpful as it contains 460 disorders/health conditions listed alphabetically and coded by specialty, and it identifies nursing priorities and interventions across each specialty area. It also will aid nursing students in enhancing their care plan writing skills through their use of the nursing process.
