Abstract: PurposeTo test the viability of to use specialists' opinions to establish degrees of membership between nursing diagnoses and its elements (defining characteristics or risk factors), based on the concepts of fuzzy sets theory. This strategy may feasibly mapping the specialist's knowledge on the diagnostic task. MethodsSpecialists were invited to reflect on the relationship between diagnoses and elements using linguistic variables, with a numerical representation. FindingsWe generated four matrices of 28 diagnoses and 62 elements. Out of 905 possibilities, we identified 286 relationships, represented in graphs. ConclusionsThe strategy was able to identify degrees of membership between nursing diagnoses and elements. ImplicationsIt seems that this method, if expanded, would contribute to refining and mapping the NANDA-I terminology. ObjetivoTestar a viabilidade de utilizar a opiniAo de especialistas para estabelecer graus de pertinencia entre diagnosticos de enfermagem e seus elementos (caracteristicas definidoras ou fatores de risco), baseado nos conceitos da Teoria dos Conjuntos Fuzzy. Esta estrategia podera viabilizar o mapeamento do conhecimento do especialista na tarefa diagnostica. MetodosEspecialistas foram convidados a refletir na relacAo existente entre diagnosticos e elementos, utilizando variaveis linguisticas, com representacAo numerica. ResultadosForam geradas quatro matrizes de 28 diagnosticos e 62 elementos. Dentre 905 possibilidades, foram identificadas 286 relacoes, representadas em grafos. ConclusoesA estrategia foi adequada para identificar graus de pertinencia entre diagnosticos de enfermagem e elementos. ImplicacoesVislumbra-se que esta metodologia, se expandida, contribua ao refinamento e mapeamento da classificacAo NANDA-I.
