AbstractAims: To set out terms to be used in diagnosis/outcomes statements as well as in nursing interventions directed to senior patients; to formulate terminological subsets of the INCP® for the elderly in the municipality of João Pessoa – PB. This study is based on the Life Model theory. Method: The study process involves the following four stages: identification of the patient; collection of relevant terms and concepts with regard to the senior patient; formulation of terminological subsets of the INCP® for the elderly; proposal for a terminological subset of the INCP® for the elderly. Results: The analysis has shown that all 127 terms used in diagnosis/outcomes statements and 617 nursing interventions contain all the features considered relevant for a good quality of life in old age. Conclusion: After being duly validated, these new subsets should be a helpful resource for healthcare providers working at Primary Care centers in the municipality of João Pessoa - PB.
