Handbook of Nursing Diagnosis by Lynda Juall Carpenito-Moyet
The newly revised Twelfth Edition of this best-selling handbook is an easy-to-carry, accessible quick reference of 2007/2008 NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses and collaborative problems. Section One contains all nursing diagnoses, including definitions, characteristics, related factors, outcomes, and interventions. New to this edition is Section Two, which highlights the health promotion/wellness nursing diagnoses. Section Three contains Diagnostic Clusters with a collaborative focus. Every NANDA diagnosis includes listings of associated Nursing Interventions Classifications (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC). Other features include Author's Notes sections and icons highlighting considerations for special populations. A laminated card groups common diagnoses by functional health patterns.
