    Abstract

    © 2018 NANDA International, Inc. PURPOSE: To validate the content of the NANDA-I diagnosis “death anxiety” (00147). METHODS: Descriptive study using the Fehring model with 202 Spanish nurses who were expert in end-of-life care to explore the adequacy of the components of the NANDA-I diagnosis “death anxiety” (00147) in the Spanish edition. FINDINGS: None of the diagnosis definitions were considered as representative. Furthermore, 5 of the 56 defining characteristics and 5 of the 26 related factors were validated as major. CONCLUSIONS: In general, the components of the diagnosis “death anxiety” (00147) in the Spanish edition are not representative according to experts. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: The results support the need to either exclude the diagnosis from the taxonomy or adjust its content.
