Nursing Diagnosis Knowledge Deficit- NCP Dysmenorrhea

Dysmenorrhea is the occurrance of painful cramps during menstruation.
Dysmenorrhea is called "primary" when there is no specific abnormality, and "secondary" when the pain is caused by an underlying gynecological problem. It is believed that primary dysmenorrhea occurs when hormone-like substances called "prostaglandins" produced by uterine tissue trigger strong muscle contractions in the uterus during menstruation.

Knowledge deficit is a lack of cognitive information or psychomotor skills required for health recovery, maintenance, or health promotion. Teaching may take place in a hospital, ambulatory care, or home setting. The learner may be the patient, a family member, a significant other, or a caregiver unrelated to the patient. Learning may involve any of the three domains: cognitive domain (intellectual activities, problem-solving, and others), affective domain (feelings, attitudes, beliefs), and psychomotor domain (physical skills or procedures).
