Translate to Cure is now a member of the Asociación Española de Nomenclatura, Taxonomía y Diagnósticos de Enfermería (AENTDE) [Spanish Association of Nomenclature, Taxonomy, and Nursing Diagnosis]. The objectives of the AENTDE are 1) to contribute to the development of nursing terminology, 2) to foment and promote the knowledge and use of nursing diagnoses, interventions and results among nurses, and 3) to collaborate with national and international organizations to promote the exchange and research on nursing diagnoses, interventions and results.
The AENTDE is similar to the NANDA International organization (previously the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA)). Both NANDA International and the AENTDE work to develop, refine and promote terminology that accurately reflects nurses’ clinical judgments to ensure patient safety through evidence-based care, and thereby improving the health care of all people. The mission of NANDA International is:
“To facilitate the development, refinement, dissemination and use of standardized nursing diagnostic terminology:
We provide the world's leading evidence-based nursing diagnoses for use in practice and to determine interventions and outcomes;
We contribute to patient safety through the integration of evidence-based terminology into clinical practice and clinical decision-making;
We fund research through the NANDA Foundation;
We are a supportive and energetic global network of nurses, who are committed to improving the quality of nursing care and improvement of patient safety through evidence-based practice.”
