2009 Think Tank Meeting

In October 2009, the NANDA International Board of Directors convened a two-day Think Tank meeting in Chicago, which included face-to-face dialogue, teleconferencing/videoconferencing, and survey responses from renowned researchers, educators, administrators, and informaticists working with NANDA-I terminology from 24 different countries. Experts from Brazil, Japan, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States participated in the face-to- face and teleconference/videoconference meetings.

Additionally, responses to a survey distributed prior to the meeting were received from 86 individuals representing 16 additional countries, and included 44 members and 42 nonmembers. The purpose of the Think Tank was to address several issues with which the Diagnosis Development Committee (DDC) was grappling, including the appropriateness of physiological diagnoses in a nursing diagnosis taxonomy, translation issues, and how to address diagnoses that might not be globally appropriate due to differences in the scope of nursing practice around the world.
