Evaluation - a step in the process that involves determining the effectiveness of the interventions in achieving the plan of care and determining the conclusions concerning the achievement or lack of achievement of desired outcomes.

Patients have problems identified and prioritized relative to biophysical, psychological, environmental, self care, educational and social status.

Goals are identified consistent with the problem to provide direction for patient care and health promotion.

Education is consistent with the identified problem and associated goals and is seen as critical to creating an environment that promotes patient empowerment.
