Book excerpt: Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) presents standardized terminology and measures for nursing-sensitive patient outcomes that result from nursing interventions. Developed by a research team at the University of Iowa, the classification can be used by clinicians, students, educators, researchers, and administrators in a variety of clinical, educational, and research venues. The comprehensiveness of the outcomes, and the inclusion of specific indicators that can be used to evaluate and rate the patient in relation to outcome achievement, make this book an invaluable resource for both practicing nurses and students. Includes 330 research-based outcome labels to provide standardization of expected patient outcomes. Presents for each outcome: a definition, list of indicators, and measures to facilitate clinical implementation. Provides links between NOC outcomes and NANDA nursing diagnoses to promote clinical decision making. Organizes NOC outcomes into a conceptual framework using a coded taxonomy to facilitate locating an outcome. Includes examples of implementation in practice and educational settings. Provides linkages with Gordon's Functional Health Patterns. 76 newly approved outcomes: 70 for individual patients and family caregivers, 3 family-level outcomes, and 3 community-level outcomes. Research results from 10 clinical sites testing the reliability and validity of the outcomes. Expanded content covering community settings, reflecting the shift in health care delivery. Core Outcomes for Nursing Specialty Areas featuring core interventions for 41 nursing specialties. An additional column in the Outcomes section measurement scale with N/A to help nurses document the specific outcome indicators that do not apply to their patient.
