Abstract

Our aim was to contribute to the clinical validation of “Substance Addiction Consequences” (SAC) derived from the nursing outcomes classification (NOC), and to analyse psychometric properties. To that purpose, we applied a methodological design. The study’s outcome comprises 16 nursing-sensitive indicators, within four different consequence factors: psychological and family; physical and cognitive ability; self-care; economic and work. The psychometric properties were considered good. We concluded that the scale can be used as a valid tool to measure the consequences of substance addiction and to assess the health status as a nursing sensitive outcome. The scale is considered valid to monitor nursing interventions in the clinical setting; being a comprehensive tool it allows the nurse to understand better this complex health problem.
