Abstract

Purpose

To develop and test the content validity of a nursing assessment tool for data collection (NATDC) based on NANDA-I for use in outpatients with chronic cardiovascular diseases.

Methods

Construction based on the literature, refinement with a pilot group of hypertensive outpatients and content validation by experts.

Findings

The NATDC questions were divided into demographic information of the patient and family, clinical data, physical examination, and interview according to NANDA-I domains.

Conclusion

The NATDC was constructed and validated.

Implications for Nursing Practice

This tool can be used in patients with chronic illnesses who experience a variety of human responses seeking nursing care in an outpatient setting because it is based in human responses within a structured framework for nursing assessment.
