This study validated 13 nursing interventions related to patient teaching. Four of the labels address the process of patient teaching, whereas the other nine concern content specific to teaching efforts. With the help of 46 master's-prepared nurses from across the country, critical (major) and supporting (minor) activities for each label were identified. This study is one of many steps toward the construction of a taxonomy of nursing interventions focused on direct care treatments that nurses perform on behalf of patients. The ultimate goal is to provide nurses with a standardized language that can be used to document their unique role in providing quality patient care and provide an appropriate avenue for reimbursement of nursing services.
