Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify the most common nursing diagnoses in chronic renal patients using as reference Imogene King's Conceptual System, which describes the three systems that form the basis for her model: personal, interpersonal and social. A data collecting tool with a supervised follow up was applied to 20 pa-tients in a unit of dialysis in order to verify the patients' needs. The diagnoses were determined according to NANDA's Taxonomy II. In 50% or more of the chronic renal clients nursing diagnoses were: risk of infection, altered protection and altered comfort.
