Silva Kde L, Évora YD, Cintra CS - Rev Lat Am Enfermagem (2015 Sep-Oct)

Bottom Line: to report the development of a software to support decision-making for the selection of nursing diagnoses and interventions for children and adolescents, based on the nomenclature of nursing diagnoses, outcomes and interventions of a university hospital in Paraiba. a methodological applied study based on software engineering, as proposed by Pressman, developed in three cycles, namely: flow chart construction, development of the navigation interface, and construction of functional expressions and programming development. the software consists of administrative and nursing process screens.The assessment is automatically selected according to age group, the nursing diagnoses are suggested by the system after information is inserted, and can be indicated by the nurse.The interventions for the chosen diagnosis are selected by structuring the care plan. the development of this tool used to document the nursing actions will contribute to decision-making and quality of care.

ABSTRACT

Objective: to report the development of a software to support decision-making for the selection of nursing diagnoses and interventions for children and adolescents, based on the nomenclature of nursing diagnoses, outcomes and interventions of a university hospital in Paraiba.

Method: a methodological applied study based on software engineering, as proposed by Pressman, developed in three cycles, namely: flow chart construction, development of the navigation interface, and construction of functional expressions and programming development.

Result: the software consists of administrative and nursing process screens. The assessment is automatically selected according to age group, the nursing diagnoses are suggested by the system after information is inserted, and can be indicated by the nurse. The interventions for the chosen diagnosis are selected by structuring the care plan.

Conclusion: the development of this tool used to document the nursing actions will contribute to decision-making and quality of care.

Mentions: Once the administrative screens were constructed, the nursing process construction phasestarted. With that aim, the data collection instruments for children from birth to fiveyears old and adolescents are converted to SISPED screens. To facilitate the use, simpleinterfaces were constructed, which reflect the reality of care and maintain thecharacteristics of validated instruments. The screens were constructed considering thesequence of basic human needs in the instruments and the next phases of the nursingprocess. Figure 3shows, as an example, the screenon the nutritional needs of the nursing history.
