Abstract

PURPOSE:

To identify nursing diagnoses and interventions applicable for post-acute-phase battered women.

METHODS:

Eight battered women were interviewed twice for 2 hours. Gordon's functional health patterns provided the framework for data collection.

FINDINGS:

Fifty-three nursing diagnoses and 52 nursing interventions were indicated in the data; 24 nursing diagnoses and 26 nursing interventions were present in all participants' data.

CONCLUSIONS:

With the use of comprehensive interventions, nurses can make a major contribution to society by enabling battered women to move to a more protected lifestyle.
