This text contains all the major Diagnoses listed by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA)—standard diagnoses that are meant to create a standard plan of care for patients with any range of ailments. The Twelfth Edition of the Manual of Nursing Diagnosis is updated and organized to meet the needs of both novices and expert diagnosticians. Sample admission assessment guides are included for the family, community, and individual (adults, infants, young children, and critical care clients). Sections on how diagnoses can be used to guide questions and observations beyond the basic assessment and how to use diagnostic categories in other clinical activities (for example, critical paths, quality improvement) provide a quick reference.
