Aim: The aim of this study was to reviewinterventional studies conducted by nurses about elderly people with urinaryincontinence in nursing homes and to match the results to standardized nursingterminology using the Nursing Interventions Classification and the NursingOutcomes Classification Linkages to the NANDA-I diagnoses guidelines.

Method: A systematic review of quantitativeintervention studies was conducted using the PRISMA statement as a guide. Theinterventional research in English was scanned using the MEDLINE and CINAHLdatabases from January 2005 to May 2015. Fourteen studies that had at least onenurse researcher were conducted in nursing homes, excluding surgical andpharmacological interventions. The Nursing Outcome Classification and NursingIntervention Classification Linkages to NANDA-I diagnoses and the ClinicalConditions Part II-U List were used as a guide to select North American NursingDiagnosis Association International nursing diagnoses, Nursing OutcomeClassification Scales, and Nursing Interventions from the data.

Results: We found the frequency of use ofvarious NANDA-I diagnoses, Nursing Interventions, and Nursing Outcomes based onthe Nursing Outcomes Classification and Nursing Interventions ClassificationLinkages to NANDA-I diagnoses and the Clinical Conditions List forincontinence.

Conclusion: Using the Nursing OutcomesClassification and Nursing Interventions Classification Linkages to NANDA-Idiagnoses guide may provide new nursing perspectives on non-standardizedresearch. In future studies, this may allow a comparison of data worldwide,enabling nurses to use the results in evidence-based practices.
