Current nursing terminology efforts have converged toward meeting the demand for a reference terminology for nursing concepts by building on the foundation of existing interface and administrative terminologies and by collaborating with terminology efforts across the spectrum of health care. In this article, the authors illustrate how collaboration is promoting convergence toward a reference terminology for nursing by briefly summarizing a wide range of exemplary activities. These include: 1…

Evidence-based Nursing Practice: A Call to Action for Nursing Informatics
TLDR
Following the Seventh International Congress on Nursing Informatics, multidisciplinary experts convened in Rotorua, New Zealand, to examine the topic of evidence-based practice and outcomes from an informatics perspective.
Nursing Informatics: Decades of Contribution to Health Informatics
TLDR
A contemporary understanding of "nursing informatics" is presented and it is related to applications in three specific contexts, hospitals, community health, and home dwelling, to illustrate achievements that contribute to the overall schema of health informatics.
Implications for Nursing Research and Generation of Evidence
TLDR
Some important trends in research that motivate increased attention to practice-based generation of evidence include an increased emphasis on interdisciplinary, translational, and comparative effectiveness research; novel research designs; frameworks and models that inform generation ofevidence from practice; and creation of data sets that include not only variables related to biological and genetic measures, but also social and behavioral variables.
What Nurses Do: Use of the ISO Reference Terminology Model for Nursing Action as a Framework for Analyzing MICU Nursing Practice Patterns
TLDR
The ISO RTM for Nursing Action is utilized as a model to decompose nursing actions and as a framework for analyzing the practice patterns of nurses working in a medical intensive care unit (MICU).
Nursing Process Outcome Linkage Research: Issues, Current Status, and Health Policy Implications
TLDR
Nursing process outcome research is reviewed, issues inherent in nursing effectiveness research are clarified, and implications for nursing and health policy are discussed.
Representing nursing knowledge on maternal and neonatal health: a study on the cultural suitability of ICNP®.
TLDR
The study confirmed that ICNP® is an important instrument to identify the concepts needed to describe mother and child needs during the perinatal period.
Standardized nursing diagnoses in an electronic health record: nursing survey results.
TLDR
Overall, the standardized terminology provided the nurses greater ease in their selection of nursing diagnoses and interventions in planning patient care, yet their reported satisfaction did not change.

White Paper: Terminology Standards for Nursing: Collaboration at the Summit
  • J. Ozbolt
  • Medicine
    J. Am. Medical Informatics Assoc.
  • 2000
TLDR
The 1999 Nursing Vocabulary Summit Conference changed the level of discussion about nursing vocabulary standards from a debate about the relative merits of the various terminologies recognized in the United States to an examination of methods for developing and testing a reference terminology model and, eventually, a reference vocabulary that could serve as an international standard.
Terminology Standards for Nursing
TLDR
The 1999 Nursing Vocabulary Summit Conference changed the level of discussion about nursing vocabulary standards from a debate about the relative merits of the various terminologies recognized in the United States to an examination of methods for developing and testing a reference terminology model and, eventually, a reference vocabulary that could serve as an international standard.
Toward an International Classification for Nursing Practice: a literature review & survey.
TLDR
A literature search and survey of national nurses' associations and individuals involved in classification across the world were conducted, in addition to a pilot search for articles describing nursing nomenclatures and classifications in countries other than the US and Canada.
Standards for nursing terminology.
TLDR
The authors describe the motivation behind the development of a standard for nursing terminologies and explain how a terminology model might form the basis for such a standard through a description of the approach taken by CEN TC251 (the Health Informatics Technical Committee of the European Committee for Standardization).
Review: Embedded Structures and Representation of Nursing Knowledge
TLDR
Embedded structures in three different approach- es to organizing domain knowledge are discussed: scientific reasoning, expertise, and standardized nursing lan- guages.
Toward comparable nursing data: American Nurses Association criteria for data sets, classification systems, and nomenclatures.
TLDR
Revised criteria for nursing data sets, classification systems, and nomenclatures are reflective of the evolution in the healthcare environment toward concept-oriented terminologic systems that facilitate data re-use.
Review: Nursing Classification Systems: Necessary but not Sufficient for Representing "What Nurses Do" for Inclusion in Computer-based Patient Record Systems
TLDR
It is argued that taxonomic, combinatorial vocabularies capable of coding atomic-level nursing activities are required to effectively capture in a reproducible and reversible manner the clinical decisions and actions of nurses, and that, without such vocABularies and associated grammars, potentially important clinical process data is lost during the encoding process.
A Focus on Implementing Nursing Vocabularies
  • C. Gassert
  • Computer Science
    J. Am. Medical Informatics Assoc.
  • 1998
TLDR
The conference served as a summit to bring together vocabulary developers, industrial partners, sites implementing systems that include nursing vocabularies, researchers, policy-makers, and government representatives to discuss issues surrounding the difficulties of implementing languages that represent nursing concepts in computer-based systems.
Review: A Review of Major Nursing Vocabularies and the Extent to Which They Have the Characteristics Required for Implementation in Computer-based Systems
TLDR
Criteria not fully met by any systems were clear and non-redundant representation of concepts, administrative cross-references, syntax and grammar, synonyms, uncertainty, context-free identifiers, and language independence.
Model Formulation: Representing Nursing Activities within a Concept-oriented Terminological System: Evaluation of a Type Definition
TLDR
While Delivery Mode and Activity Focus were almost universally present, Recipient was problematic and further research is needed to refine the type definition and its use for representing nursing activity concepts within a concept-oriented terminological system.
