[Article in Portuguese]

Author information

Universidade Federal Fluminense, Hospital Universitário Antonio Pedro. Niterói-RJ, Brasil.


This is a descriptive study, which aimed to propose a subset of nursing diagnoses for chronic renal failure patients in stage five of the disease, developing them according to the guidelines of the ICNP® and arranging them according to the concepts of Wanda de Aguiar Horta's Theory of Basic Human Needs; and validate the subset of nursing diagnoses proposed, subjecting them to experts for judging its relevance to chronic renal failure patients in stage five of the disease. It was drawn up, in total, a subset of 77 nursing diagnoses, among which 70 (90%) had a Concordance Index ≥ 0.80 among judges, being validated. The subset of nursing diagnoses resulting from the study is quite comprehensive, and one believe in its potential to subsidize a more comprehensive nursing care to the chronic renal patient.
