When assessing diabetes-related health concerns, for example, the nurses are first tasked to collect data, such as from medical records and interviews with patients. These data would then be used by the nurse to diagnose the situation, identifying the risk factors associated with it or the contributing behavior. After the diagnosis, nurses are able to begin developing appropriate interventions that take into account research and current best practices in diabetes management. Finaly, the nurses implement and evaluate their care plan by monitoring progress of patients against predetermined targets. This allows for adjustments to be made in order to achieve optimal outcomes.
