A nursing diagnosis is defined as a clinical judgement about individual, family or community responses to actual or potential health problems or life processes which provide the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse is accountable. Accurate and valid nursing diagnoses guide the selection of interventions that are likely to produce the desired treatment effects and determine nurse-sensitive outcomes. Nursing diagnoses are seen as key to the future of evidence-based, professionally-led nursing care – and to more effectively meeting the need of patients and ensuring patient safety. In an era of increasing electronic patient health records standardized nursing terminologies such as NANDA, NIC and NOC provide a means of collecting nursing data that are systematically analyzed within and across healthcare organizations and provide essential data for cost/benefit analysis and clinical audit. 'Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification' is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses worldwide. Each nursing diagnoses undergoes a rigorous assessment process by NANDA-I with stringent criteria to indicate the strength of the underlying level of evidence. Each diagnosis comprises a label or name for the diagnosis and a definition. Actual diagnoses include defining characteristics and related factors. Risk diagnoses include risk factors. Many diagnoses are further qualified by terms such as effective, ineffective, impaired, imbalanced, readiness for, disturbed, decreased etc. The 2009-2011 edition is arranged by concept according to Taxonomy II domains (i.e. Health promotion, Nutrition, Elimination and Exchange, Activity/Rest, Perception/Cognition, Self-Perception, Role Relationships, Sexuality, Coping/ Stress Tolerance, Life Principles, Safety/Protection, Comfort, Growth/Development). The book contains new chapters on 'Critical judgement and assessment' and 'How to identify appropriate diagnoses' and core references for all nursing diagnoses. A companion website hosts NANDA-I position statements, new PowerPoint slides, and FAQs for students. 2009-2011 edition arranged by concepts New chapters on 'Critical judgement and assessment' and 'How to identify appropriate diagnoses' Core references for new diagnoses and level of evidence for each diagnosis Companion website available

The next time you find yourself drawn outside to gaze at the night sky with wonder and longing, take this book along (with a flashlight!) to help you leapfrog through spacetime. The curious reader hungry for knowledge about the substance of Earth, Moon, Sun, the galaxies, even the “Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence,” will find in these pages an almost random dipping into the history of astronomy and the cosmos, to be experienced as one might consume bon-bons, or—for those looking to return to earthier roots—tomatoes, potatoes and spinach. What these “Tidbits” have to offer you is not so much a perfectly balanced meal as a scattering of all my favorite morsels, an offering I encourage you to consume as your appetite dictates.

Ce livre-outil permet aux infirmiers et aux étudiants de réagir à toute situation de soin, grâce à un ensemble de fiches traitant des soins les plus simples aux soins les plus complexes. Une partie générale rappelle les principes de base pour un exercice infirmier de qualité. Les 118 fiches constituant le corps de l'ouvrage sont divisées en deux parties : les soins transversaux (fiches rouges), relevant de toutes les spécialités, comme les soins d'hygiène, les prélèvements, l'installation du patient, les pansements, etc ; les soins spécifiques (fiches vertes) propres à chaque spécialité : réanimation, urgences, pédiatrie, psychiatrie... Un pictogramme signale les fiches correspondant au portfolio de compétences (techniques devant être maîtrisées par tout étudiant au terme de sa formation en IFSI). La plupart des fiches de l'ouvrage ont été mises à jour selon les nouvelles recommandations : CLIN, SFAR, SRLF, HAS. En outre, chaque fiche comporte une rubrique sur les responsabilités de l'infirmier en fonction du soin exercé, avec l'article du décret relatif aux actes professionnels. De nombreuses illustrations en couleurs éclairent la réalisation d'un soin ou la présentation d'un matériel particulier, quand cela est nécessaire. Un DVD (Mac et PC), comportant 24 séquences (filmées ou animées) de gestes techniques, accompagne cette 4e édition. Complet et pratique, cet ouvrage est un outil indispensable à tous les étudiants en IFSI et aux professionnels, hospitaliers et libéraux.
