INTRODUCTION: Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation ( HSCT) has become the standard of care for some haematological diseases that do not respond to traditional treatments: pre-transplant therapy still causes high mortality and morbidity today. Due to the high risk, patient care requires careful evalua- tion and often complex, intensive and non-risk free interventions; the NANDA-I classification provides a way to classify and standardise areas of nursing interest. A previous consensus among experts had iden- tified 61 diagnoses, according to the classification NANDA-I 2018-2020, relevant in onco-haematolo- gical field. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to identify which of the 61 diagnoses were relevant for patients undergoing HSCT. METHOD: A Delphi study was conducted in two rounds; a structured questionnaire on a 4 point Likert scale was used to build consensus, involving 57 experienced nurse enrolled in Italian GITMO Centres. RESULTS: The present study has identified 34 relevant NANDA-I diagnoses in patients undergoing HSCT; it also defined 11 as important diagnoses having obtained absolute consensus. DISCUSSION: Use the NANDA-I diagnoses to know, from a panel of experts, the most important and relevant health problems associated with the toxicity of pre- HCSE treatment, it can direct assistance and resources towards expercied and known outcomes so as to be able to intervene effectively with performances aimed at reducing risks and specific complications.
