"what is the difference between nursing diagnosis and collaborative problems?"

Even if I believed in answering students' questions outright, I wouldn't know the answer to this.

Coming from home health, we frequently have collaborative problems. Patient has multifaceted problems including physiological, psychosocial, functional etc and no one can accomplish their goals (mine being based on a nursing diagnosis..hint) unless we all *collaborate* to come up with solutions. Think ramp needs to be built, patient needs a hemi walker and know how to use it, pain is impeding independence in ADL's, but can't afford his copay, which is exacerbating his depression and hindering his motivation..

Can you find the nursing diagnosis? And discern the collaborative problems?

That would be the practical answer, can't help you with the academic one.
