    It is in your books, try the chapter on Diagnosing...chapter 17 in my book but will be different in yours. It stands for

    PROBLEM - A statement of the clients's response

    ETIOLOGY - FActors contributing to or causing the response

    Signs and Symptoms - Defining characteristics manifested by the client.

    Hope this helps!!

    studying,..can you tell?

    You might find it written about in relation to the nursing diagnostic statement where the R/T (related to) part is the etiology and the AEB (as evidence by) are the symptoms. It's an older acronym.

    PES is a format for writing a nursing diagnosis.

    Problem related/to etiology (cause) as evidenced by signs and symptoms.

    They didn't have it, but you can "suggest" an acronym you can't find.

    Thanks everyone, PES isn't listed in the index of my book but it is under the careplan section.
