Nursing Diagnosis

  1. 0 I really need help with a nursing diagnosis. I am writing diagnosis for the movie Losing Isaiah if anyone is familiar with the movie. I wanted to write a diagnoses about drug use while breast feeding. It seemed to easy to come up with, but then I started over thinking, is it:

    Knowledge deficit r/t breastfeeding AEB drug use during breastfeeding
    Knowledge deficit r/t drug abuse AEB use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding
    (and it I write it this way is it r/t drug use or risks of drug use???)

    LOL! I am so confused, and I'm making it harder than what it is, but please help???

    The correct way to write a knowledge deficit diagnosis is

    Knowledge deficit + what the deficit is r/t (whatever it's related to) AEB whatever evidence there is.

    For example in your case it would be Knowledge deficit breastfeeding r/t lack of exposure to teaching AEB drug use while breastfeeding infant.

    This movie gives some good psych social dx. examples. I always liked to think out of the norms with stuff like this. Unless it specifically said you have to have this or that.
