Multidimensional model of successful aging and nursing terminologies: similarities for use in the clinical practice
Palavras-chave:Aging. Nursing process. Standardized nursing terminology.
Aim: To compare the domains of the Multidimensional Model of Successful Aging (MMSA)
with the nursing terminologies, such as, NANDA International (NANDA-I), Nursing
Interventions Classification (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC), in order to
find similarities among them.
Method: Cross-mapping between MMSA and nursing terminologies in two stages: individual
analysis and comparison between the MMSA and the nursing terminologies, based on the
mapping process rules; consensus among researchers to validate the results.
Results: All NOC and NIC domains were mapped with similarity in the MMSA domains, and
12 of the 13 NANDA-I domains showed similarity to the MMSA domains. In addition,
similarity was identified between MMSA and most classes of the three classifications.
Conclusions: The similarity between MMSA, NANDA-I, NIC and NOC supported the idea
that the MMSA framework can be used in the nursing process to qualify the nursing practice
in the elderly care.
Keywords: Aging. Nursing process. Standardized nursing terminology.
