Nursing Diagnosis Handbook, Eleventh Edition,

This convenient pocket guide has been expanded to include 25 new nursing diagnoses approved by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA International) for 2015-2017; to retire obsolete NANDA diagnoses; and to link to the latest Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) and Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) research-based outcomes and interventions. NANDA International, NOC, and NIC standardized terminology is generally used wherever appropriate. Reflecting key trends in the profession, it  addresses family, community, and collaborative interventions, as well as gerontology and home care.
