Documental descriptive research, presents the mapping of the terms from the "Action" Axis among the versions: Beta-2, 1.0 and 1.1 of the ICNP® and the verbs of CIPESC®. Results are: 22% of terms from Version 1.0 are new; 12.61% are identical, with different concept; 51% are not in CIPESC®; 65% of terms from CIPESC® are not in ICNP®, in relation to them, 15% represent actions related to link building or empowerment. The results require validation by experts. This paper discusses the complexity of the Portuguese language and the need to establish consensus among concepts. The lack of verbs from CIPESC® is considered a gap to be filled, which may reflect the use of ICNP® by nurses in public health.

    ABSTRACT: Background. Nursing terminologies are designed to support nursing practice but, as with any other clinical tool, they should be evaluated. Cross-mapping is a formal method for examining the validity of the existing controlled vocabularies. Objectives. The study aims to assess the inclusiveness and expressiveness of the nursing diagnosis axis of a newly implemented interface terminology by cross-mapping with the NANDA-I taxonomy. Design/Methods. The study applied a descriptive design, using a cross-sectional, bidirectional mapping strategy. The sample included 728 concepts from both vocabularies. Concept cross-mapping was carried out to identify one-to-one, negative, and hierarchical connections. The analysis was conducted using descriptive statistics. Results. Agreement of the raters' mapping achieved 97%. More than 60% of the nursing diagnosis concepts in the NANDA-I taxonomy were mapped to concepts in the diagnosis axis of the new interface terminology; 71.1% were reversely mapped. Conclusions. Main results for outcome measures suggest that the diagnosis axis of this interface terminology meets the validity criterion of cross-mapping when mapped from and to the NANDA-I taxonomy.
