Prepared by staff nurses and clinical nurse specialists, this book reflects up-to-the-minute clinical expertise and technology. It consists of approximately 140 plans, including 33 plans for commonly used NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses and plans for over 100 medical diagnoses. For each care plan, the book features: nursing diagnoses with related factors for each medical diagnosis; defining characteristics; ongoing assessment, therapeutic interventions with rationales, and expected outcomes; defines each medical diagnosis, so the book is useful both as a reference and as a means of identifying the specifics/limitations of the care plan; and includes psychosocial and developmental concerns within discussions.
