Scope/domain statement for the code system

(Official or from HTA)

Clinical Care Classification (CCC) system is a nursing classification designed to document the steps of the nursing process across the care continuum. The CCC system consists of two interrelated taxonomies: the CCC of Nursing Diagnoses and Outcomes, and the CCC of Nursing Interventions and Actions. Both taxonomies are classified by care components, or clusters of elements, that represent behavioral, functional, physiological, or psychological care patterns.
