I know this is a weird question but I am writing an APA essay about a client. We must include two nursing diagnoses and within the paper I am talking about them such as ......"The nursing diagnosis most relevant to the client's physical state is chronic pain r/t or Chronic pain r/t or chronic pain r/t ?????

, and describes what these are. in a formal essay i would write it out:
the nursing diagnosis statement most relevant to the client's physical state is chronic pain related to ______.
