. Quoting the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA), Reed and Tarko (2004) say the purpose of a nursing diagnosis is to “provide the basis for the selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse is accountable” (p. 263). Loveland-Cherry and Bomar (2004) recognize that family health promotion has not been adequately addressed by the suggested NANDA diagnoses because of their orientation to problems (a focus on deficits) rather than a statement that says: this is what the family wants to work towards; these are their strengths and resources that can be further built upon and developed while being mindful of but not focusing on their concerns and challenges alone. a) What are the primary differences between a NANDA diagnosis and a family health promotion diagnosis? b) What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of using a NANDA diagnosis? c) What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of using a family health promotion diagnosis? d) Consider the needs of a family concerned with meeting a 76-year-old grandfather’s needs who lives independently in a neighbouring community. This gentleman has hypertension, type II diabetes, and was recommended to use a walker when mobilizing outside the home but he does not always use it. Formulate health promotion diagnoses for this family. Formulate NANDA diagnoses for the same family. Reference: Kaakinen, J.R., Coehlo, D.P., Steele, R. & Robinson, M. (2018).
