Thieme, an award-winning international medical and scientific publisher, announces today that it has signed a publishing and distribution agreement with NANDA International, Inc. (NANDA-I). Under the terms of this contract, Thieme will be taking over the English and certain other rights to publish, sub-license, and sell future editions of NANDA International Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification and the NANDA-I diagnostic system.
Built upon the NANDA-I Taxonomy of Nursing Diagnoses, this definitive guide not only provides chapters on the basics of nursing assessment, diagnosis, and clinical reasoning, but also details the definitions, defining characteristics, and risk factors for each of the 248 diagnoses. The work is published in numerous languages, and sub-licensed for use in databases and electronic medical record systems. Updated every three years with the latest global evidence and appearing this summer in its 11th edition, the NANDA International Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification book reflects the diversity and practice differences of this profession across the world. New in this edition is the addition of associated conditions and at risk populations to aid in diagnosis.
Commenting on the new partnership, Brian Scanlan, President of Thieme Publishers said, “Thieme is delighted to be working with NANDA International, Inc. on the publication and distribution of this work. Our international business is perfectly positioned to support NANDA-I with worldwide distribution and licensing, and our long experience in producing and promoting high quality, accurate medical and scientific knowledge will ensure the global nursing community continues to have access to the most current standardized nursing terminology.”
