Despite limitations of this study, findings reflected a consensus concerning defining characteristics of the nursing diagnoses Impaired Skin Integrity, Sleep Pattern Disturbance (Adult), and Activity Intolerance. Beginning support was found for defining characteristics of Sleep Pattern Disturbance (Child) and Parental Role Conflict. Additional content validation research that focuses on perceived frequently used diagnoses is indicated to generate clinically relevant nursing diagnoses.
