CAMIA, Gislaine Eiko Kuahara; BARBIERI, Márcia  and  MARIN, Heimar de Fátima. Nursing phenomena identified in family planning visits with ICNP - Beta Version 2. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.5, pp.674-681. ISSN 1518-8345.

This descriptive, exploratory, retrospective survey, carried out at a family planning service, aimed to identify nursing phenomena during nursing visits according to the ICNP, Beta version 2. Data were collected based on 52 records of nursing visits, realized from October 2001 to December 2002. To conduct the cross-mapping process, all identified nursing phenomena were joined, organized and compared according to the ICNP's terms. Of the 51 identified nursing phenomena/diagnoses, 46 (90.2%) showed exact and partial concordance. The identified nursing phenomena can be used to assist nurses to provide care for clients in family planning services. The ICNP showed to be a comprehensive program, although some terms need to be reviewed and others enhanced. However, considering that it is an international classification applicable to several countries, the mapping process and cross-references were very satisfactory.
